Months of hard work go towards one big race. Long hours in the pool, thousands of kilometers and tens of thousands of arm strokes…all for a few minutes of racing.

In this episode we talk with Sam Ashby (who features in the Mastering Freestyle program) about what do 3 weeks out from a big meet. He talks about the stages of tapering (tapering is where you reduce the intensity of your training leading up to competition). We talk about warming up on the day of your race and what a good routine consists of.
