I'm not sure it's getting any easier
We've had 2 more days on the water. The last two days I went out with Coach Cox which was a little more stressful and a little less stressful at the same time. I did drive Monday for him and it was only a little less stressful than driving with Tim, but today I mainly just rode in the launch and listened and tried to frantically absorb as much as I could. Geez, there is just soooooo much I don't know and I just hate feeling stupid and clueless. I don't like not being good at something. What was really nice and less stressful is Mike took the Novice boat out for the last 2 days and that was really beneficial for me. Mike is taking it really slowly, obviously, with them and that really helps me. They move at a much slower pace, and each part of the process is broken down and exaggerated, which really helps me understand what they should be doing. I just don't think there is anyway I'm ever going to learn enough to be a coach, but I'm not going to quit or give up - mainly because I don't want to leave them in a bind, but also because I always tell the kids they need to "stick with it, it will get better." So, I guess I need to put my money where my mouth is!
