A Journey From IT to Freedom

Playing with Total Immersion Swimming

Posted by IT Pilgrim on August 18, 2008

The other day I ran across Tim Ferriss’ article on Total Immersion Swimming. It was a bit of a riot because I had just requested the Freestyle DVD from Netflix the day before, and I got an IUO for a different DVD for my birrthday (last Sunday). It made me feel much better that I am not the only one in the world who swims about a centimeter an hour. I did not know why, I just knew I had a problem.

I am a child of the “just throw them in” generation, which is how I learned, just like I learned to ride horses (by falling off) its the same concept. Nothing teaches you faster than a sore bum! So this week, I am trying out some of the stuff from the dvds. Haven’t gotten the book yet, since my rural location makes library usage next to useless, maybe it will show up on paperbackswap. In the comments, the author of TI swimming also posted a link to the free PDf he has available, so I have linked it here.

As a side note, anyone else always get IOU s for birthday/christmas presents?

    I’m usually quite sharp, but you’ve got me stumped here. What is an IOU present?

    @Francois, that means your family or significant other didn’t actually get around to getting you something. They just write down what they were thinking about giving you and order or buy it when they get around to it. My family does that a lot. Maybe I should start doing it too?

    @Pilgrim: Aaah, thanks. I’m quite lucky then, I don’t get a lot of IOU presents!

    No! Don’t start doing it too Pilgrim!! Words without consequence are pretty meaningless.
