Re: Finn's three year plan

I've also started learning Total Immersion swimming That's great! I also got into TI swimming a couple of years ago in preparation for long distance triathlons. It just makes swimming so easy and pleasant, it's amazing. You just need a book, a little bit of patience and willingness to start practic...

Re: Too Old To Retire "Young"

I always used to joke that when I'd had enough I was simply going to step in front of a bus. I get it was a joke, but I think it's worth pointing out, that that would not be a very nice thing to do. For the bus driver, I mean. Unless you really dislike bus drivers in general or you are pretty sure ...

Re: the animal's journal

@animal Thank you for taking the time to answer to my questions. Your response confirms what I had expected.

I've seen Dick Proennekes videos on youtube and the vice documentary on Heimo Korth a while ago. Both very nice to watch, imo, iirc.
