With Many More Marathon Workouts To Come

With Many More Marathon Workouts To Come

Extreme. Epic. Excessive. Throw out those words.

Mind-boggling. Fanatical. Monomaniacal. Somehow those words also seem inadequate.

Aside from long pool swims, I’ve already logged non-stop swims in the ocean of 8 hours, 8 hours, 8 hours, 8 hours, 11 hours, 10 hours, 9 hours, 13 hours, 12 hours and 11 hours…with many more to come before [my] Cuba [to Florida swim].” Marathon swimmers get the obsession. They call it focus. Dedication. Love of the sport.
