My private coaching business has gotten very busy -- I think, in part, because I give a lot of energy, physical and mental, to my athletes. I view every swimmer as a puzzle to solve. Sometimes it takes a few lessons/workouts to begin unlocking the key to their speed and power. I call it the Mind-Body-Clock connection: I can instruct them, but they have to translate that into action and feel the difference in the water -- and then see it on the clock. Sometimes they don't believe the progress they have made until I tell them what their pace was and what it is now.
