Swim Fort Lauderdale Conquers a 12 Hour Practice

On Saturday, April 19th, the Swim Fort Lauderdale senior swimmers completed a 12 hour workout / swim camp!  Who among us can make that claim?

Coach Dave Gibson said:

We did this to push the athletes past their comfort zone both physically & mentally, to enhance our unity and team bond and to make swimming and training a little fun. The swimmers learned they are capable of more than they think or believe. They took it to the next level!

To me, that sounds just hellacious. I’m sure they enjoyed it and slept well that night though.

This reminds me of when Sting said he regularly had tantric sex for 5 hours, and then later admitted that it included dinner and a movie. 😉 Just kidding, I’m impressed. That’s a lot to pack into 12 hours.
