Coaches sometimes are guilty of over-explaining things. It’s as if when more words are used it will drive home the point better, more effectively. More often than not this isn’t the case; in fact quite the opposite may occur. It this age of speed and desire for quick results perhaps it is in everyone’s best interests to keep it simple.
Below comes from TK who made a very introspective observation last week…
“Hey there, I was taking a practice AP test today and came by this quote.
"He who has a why to live can bear almost any how."
I thought that was an interesting way to look at swimming, if you know why you are swimming (other than times of course) there shouldn't be anything stopping you from going to practice or making the extra commitments to the sport in order to succeed.”
