    My biggest challenge is the swim. I’ve never quite been able to figure out how to make forward progress 🙂

      Not growing up as a swimmer myself – the swim is the hardest part for me too! Swim technique can get a little overwhelming. The basics to focus on; breathing (sounds silly, but many people hold their breath while swimming only to exhale/inhale when taking a breath), crossover (avoid crossing your arms in front of your head – envision they’re always at 10 and 2) and the catch/pull (this one is tough to describe in a post and there are lots of techniques to work on the pull).
