Default Training Your Brain LOVES

Suzanne's anecdote/practice report captures and highlights four key insights of effective (and Kaizen) swim practice.
1) Aim for improvement in every practice and set.
2) Focus on process, not outcomes.
3) The nervous system can adapt with striking rapidity - in contrast to the glacial pace of aerobic system adaptation.
4) A neural focus makes every aspect of training tangible and concrete (I sometimes say empirical) -- again in contrast to the fuzziness and abstraction of aerobic-training focus and adaptation.

The human brain LOVES this kind of stimulus. And clearly it works.
