I would like to apologize to my team-mates for my absence on deck this morning. I had an electronic mishap and did not wake in time for practice. I hope you can forgive me so that we may proceed with our training this week on the best of terms.
For those of you concerned about my fitness, do not worry. I will be on deck at 11 to make up for lost time in the pool.
For those of you who did not notice my absence, I think we may have a few more apologies to hand out.
See you at the track,
