“for the next 800 yards” – did he take a diagonal turn and start swimming yards?

Training load should be prescribed based on recovery. If you’re not recovered and the coach/.swimmer just goes with day X of the microcycle planned months (even days) in advance, it’s overtraining. This is such old news. Conner Jaeger got a WHOOP and started targeting his training load to his recovery on a day to day basis in his runup to the Olympic success.

No, that would be Motorcycle Man, and he —- at least temporarily—- redeemed himself.

I don’t care how “old news” this is. I never get tired of throwing more sleep in my kids’ faces. Please bring this so called old news as often as possible Swimswam. THANK YOU!

Not true. Any amount of training without sleep and ENOUGH QUALITY FOOD can become overtraining due to inability to recover. Doubles can be optimal, but only for those who take care of themselves properly. We now have tools that can help us to know when the rest is more important than the extra swim.
