Rust Never Sleeps is an album by Canadian singer-songwriter Neil Young and American band Crazy Horse. It was released on July 2, 1979, by Reprise Records. Most of the album was recorded live, and then overdubbed in the studio. Young used the phrase "rust never sleeps" as a concept for his tour with Crazy Horse to avoid artistic complacency and try more progressive, theatrical approaches to performing live.
We took our team to a ½ day conference meet with 3 other teams today. We haven’t been on the blocks since early August. We have some rust and it showed today. However, we need not fret since we are, like Young, avoiding complacency by being more progressive in our approaches to racing.
All of our racing is formed by our training. We have been working on instilling new techniques taught to us by Bob Gillett for the effective use of underwater dolphin kicking. We are far from proficient yet many of our swimmers are discovering the wisdom and value of “getting it right.”
And yes, like Young, we have a few theatrical approaches by our swimmers…life is never dull around kids!
Back to the rehearsal studio – oops, we mean pool – tomorrow.
