Swim, sleep, repeat. We swim from 7 to 8:45 a.m., then do dry-land exercises or weights from 9 to 10. I go home and eat a big breakfast, take a three-hour nap, have a snack for lunch and head back for practice number two.
The not-so-rigorous part. After the second practice, I come back home, lie around until Iâ€™m hungry, have dinner, then lie around some more. Pretty glamorous, huh? You may not have known that being a pro athlete comes with the title â€œprofessional napper,â€ as well. Sleeping seems to be a huge part of my day because itâ€™s the quickest way for me to try and recover fast enough for the next practice. Iâ€™m lucky I can sleep anywhere — I have slept on a bench at an amusement park when necessary!
