The Chick Flick Wakeboarding

Talking to Melissa Ray this week reminded me of how hard it was to fit in MuayThai training with friends.

She learns Thai on her day off, I used to head out to Lake Taco and try to wakeboard while my mates zoomed around the man-made lake. Fun, lots of fun. The Chick Flick is a doco written around female wakeboarders Dallas Friday, Amber Wing and a list of other great athletes.

They make it look so easy but I've got the embarrassing photos to prove it's not quite so effortless. Read more about the film on The Chick Flick

How do you cope with learning things which are fun but super-hard to do?

How cool. I'd love to see the film.

I HATE the anxiety you get before you get in the ring. I don't know of any cure. You just have to get in in spite of your fear. I have bailed out a time or two, but I'm ALWAYS glad I boxed, after I survive it!

You have any solutions?

Congrats on beating your fear! No magic answers - just grit the teeth and dive in. It's not always pretty but works somehow:)
