      Nice job, Holly. I only swim in a heated pool here. Obviously, Oregon doesn't really need outdoor swimming pools. :) I DID spend 4 hours swimming once though, at the beginning of this year when I was recovering from an injury. Now, THAT was a long time in the pool.

      You'll get back, Holly. Don't fret about what you're missing right now. Your description of alternating moments of feeling fine and then terrible pain is just what my wife went through 10 years ago with her back. She hasn't done an Ironman, but things did get better.
