What have Brick Top and swimming got in common? 

Now you might remember the classic guy Richie film Snatch and the character in there, Brick Top, played by cockney East End actor Alan Ford.

Thinking can get you into a lot of trouble. I shouldn’t do so much of it. 

That is the thing that holds people back most when they go swimming, particularly as adults, if there’s no real swimming background. 

Adults overthink everything and so that makes swimming much more complicated than it ever really is. 

Swimming is a very simple set of movements, particularly swimming for triathlon. 

Thinking gets you into a lot of trouble with swimming.

You shouldn’t do so much of it.
