Like almost every running/cycling enthusiast, I have felt the lure of triathlon but lacked the necessary swimming skills - that is, I felt pretty happy and confident in the water, but became a spluttering mess when faced with front crawl.
Mike has been the perfect coach to guide me on my journey towards becoming a mean swimming machine - giving me the tools, technique AND the confidence I need to progress. While I'm guilty of not getting in the water as often as I should (so many exciting things to do!), I know exactly where I stand and what I need to concentrate on until I next see him.
Working with him is always fun, never stressful and he's been incredibly nice and helpful every step of the way. Ironman 2017 here I come!!! (maybe)
