Who doesn't need an extra nugget of advice? Here, Posse member Aaron Seipel offers some Posse Wisdom.
“I think the most important thing for any athlete to learn if they want to improve is how to be honest with themselves. Are they really just having an off day, or are they not giving themselves enough recovery time between hard sessions? Are they actually taking their easy days easy, or does their ego have them running a little too fast? Are they focusing on a specific component of their swim stroke during a drill set or are they just zoning out while putting in yards? Is that pain that they've been telling themselves is just muscle soreness actually an oncoming injury that they should address? I'm not saying people need to be overly critical of themselves - none of us are perfect - but being able to honestly self-reflect goes a long way.”
