"I am pleased to say that my stroke is a work in progress… It still has a little while to go before it will be comepletely effective… but then again this isn’t a process that takes place over night." Roland Schoeman after swimming 50m freestyle in 21.69 at the 2005 World Champs.

I seem to be in good company, as I am also still working on my stroke.

Last week’s Manhatten graph looks a little rat-eaten. My routine was thrown by my attendance at a recent hedge fund conference in Cape Town, where I was gullible enough to be lured in as a speaker on the Tuesday. The missing session on Tuesday was due to having forgotten my presentation slideshow at the office the previous evening - and a rush through the traffic to fetch it & still be on time.
