Here's the video:
One thing that stood out to me had nothing to do with swimming, but communication. I'm not sure if Joe is wearing ear plugs, I sure do. Notice how many times he asks for Vito to repeat what was said. For me that would be frustrating. Frustration and wasted time: two things that shouldn't happen during a swim where every second counts. It reminded me of a similar situation in England last year. Cathi was trying to tell me something, and I couldn't hear what she was saying. Here's what I wrote:
"After Josh got out I kept on going and at some point during a feed Cathi tried telling me something.With my ear plugs I couldn't hear, so I yelled out "Speak up!!!" She jumped. She yelled back....[the statement]"If you are on my crew, I need you to YELL, I'll get pissed off if I constantly have to ask for a repeat. It's just a matter of volume, not emotion. So it won't hurt my feelings, in fact it'll show me that your words are important enough to come from your gut.
