One chance

You train all year, you train almost every day of the week all year round to just win this one race that you have in the season, whether that’s county, regional or national competition, you have to get it right this one time.

It is just not good enough to say, I went out too fast because there is no room or error. You have to get it right. Race strategies have to become routine, it has to be embedded in the racing planning how to pace any length of race.

It should be a matter of simple mathematics to pace a race, you know the distance, you know the time you want to achieve and you work out how fast you can go in each length of the course. All you need to do is to focus on this job.

Don’t get moody, face the pool, face the stroke, win the race.
