- Train hard, recover hard, that's the key. I slept most of Sunday afternoon after my boogie boarding adventures. Monday, I got a much-needed massage. Ouch!
Woke up this morning ready to swim. Wha? That never happens. Told myself I could sleep in but then I was awake and ready to go at 6:30 am. No excuses! Swam 2400 yards like it was nothing. What, what, what? When did this happen? I actually wanted more!
