The thing about all this writing is that it follows hours of swimming, which often involves thinking about nothing but swimming, in particular technique, breathing; trying to maintain good form over a long distance.
I’m not sure if it makes for particularly interesting reading however.
Often after swimming I feel quite drained and the first thing I think about on leaving the water is hydration and nutrition.
The trick is to have quality nutrition to hand: bananas, nuts, water and then to eat a hearty meal, lots of protein!
