Surviving swimming During The coldest part of the year isn't just about increasing caloric intake, but getting through the daily grind, the unpredictable weather, and morning practice! Here are a few tricks to help you Stay Dedicated to the sport you love during the dog days of Winter.
Make time for you. It is Important to have balance in your life. And that includes time away from the pool.
Don't forget your friends that aren't swimmers. Include them in your life- even during the season. Invite them to meet your swim friends.
Sleep. Lack of sleep can affect every aspect of your life- Including how we perceive things. Being well rested will improve everything! Make the time.
Dress appropriately. I've seen swimmers leave practice bare legged and in little more than a parka over their suit- Take of your self. Getting sick mid season is the worst.
Eat Whole Foods. Hydrate. Take a vitamin. Swimming is better when you are healthy!
Every swimmer should Use conditioner- Your hair will thank me.
