Tomorrow will be my last day coaching for South Davis Masters. I've made many good friends, and I'll miss them. But I'm confident that our paths will cross again someday. I'm sure one day I'll get burned out with table tennis and I'll get back in the water where I won't get my butt kicked by little Asian kids.
I have a robot setup at work and I have several friends to hit with. On average I'm getting about 10-12 hours of practice per week. That's about the same amount of time I was swimming when I was in to it hardcore. So it's a fair trade-off I think!
Until then, Do what you love and love what you do!
