NY Times Roundup

There have been a lot of good articles about sports training recently with the Olympics coming (and now gone). Of particular note are a couple about aging and performance which are of particular interest to me right now.

Staying a step ahead of aging covers some basic tenets of sports performance and aging myths and facts. Being 28 and I'd say at least 2 years from peak performance it's uplifting to see the varied ages people are being competitive at these days.

Torres is getting older but swimming faster. This article talks about how modern day training techniques and knowledge facilitate competitiveness to an older age. Pretty much its all mental.

Short Layoff, Long Recovery. Just another article talking about consistency and recovery.
