    Regrets - Do you have any?

    I have no regrets but a couple of what ifs The first one was stopping triathlons when I was just starting to knock off and be competitive against the big boys at the time a few more race smarts and I think I could’ve kicked on one of my last races I went head to head with Lessing and Amos who were current 1 2 in the world got pipped was sitting in the top five of the French gp etc but my heart wasn’t in it at the time so it turned out brilliantly my girlfriend at the time who I met in the gold coast whilst training with Col ( bloody nervous as telling him I’m moving back to Sydney to chase the girl of my dreams)is now my wife we have 3 great kids I’ve left the city and stoped chasing the dollars for a simpler life and spend way more time with the kids before they brush me. so definitely no regret because of how it turned out. the other one I often think of is not doing a couple of full seasons in indo surfing in the mid 90,s it definitely wouldn’t of been as quite as the 80,s but gezzus it would have been good ..... but if I did that I wouldn’t have lived in France and travel the wirld racing etc so all good I definitely don’t dwell in it i really enjoyed watching the boys over the years kick on and dedicate themselves to racing and gaining world titles and Olympic medals and teams etc they deserve it for all the hard years before hand .that not many people know about , eg sleeping in the back of a van across the seats with Beven Docherty and Crowie to save hotel cost eating a banana and baguette as a staple meal to race and win coin to get to the next race funny times😂 No REGRETS

    You can always be tuff and ridiculous at the same time and go for the old school hard core tigger look from fun runs back in the day...😂😂 ps that’s not me I wasn’t tuff😂😂 but might be related.. haha
  12. She tells a classic story of one of these sessions , where she was begging Dick to let her do every second freestyle answer NO .. go then with tears in her goggles kept going then asking again and again and getting the same answer with 2 to go Dick said to her ok Janelle you can do the last 2 freestyle she pulled her goggles down and politely told him to F$&k off and kept going fly hahahaha
  13. Just to add to the topic I was talking to a mate the other week who is a swim coach from a while back and look at the women’s 800m not sure of the years but I think 93ish was the last change prior to that good old hard core women training the house down from the 70,s and 80,s in nylon cozzies in pools with ropes and corks on them. 3 of them swam with Dick Cain who by the standards isn’t a coach because he doesn’t have a shiny bit of paper 😂 i put it down to to much technology and analysing and not enough hard work and mongrel . I think they need to rebalance with the two systems But things might be changing soon Janell Elford use to do 16x400 fly leaving on the 5min ! Then back up in the arvo! Legend! Now her Daughter is coming up the ranks and being coached by her think she is just 16 and just clocked a 8 minute something time
