Adrenaline boost

Kim, if ever there was a problem and your wife had to muscle you onto the beach, she would find the strength. In emergency situations our brains pump adrenaline into the blood stream, giving us resources we don't normally have.

The thing about an adrenaline dump, though, is that it often it provokes an odd focus involving a sort of tunnel vision, but at the same time a lack of focus in that it becomes difficult to think clearly. The instinct is simply to react. A rescue course would give your wife tools she could during a crisis use without having to think things through; she could simply fall back on her training, use her adrenaline-induced strength and speed, and save you!
