Recovery between long swim events
I plan on doing two long swims in fall...swim the suck on October 11 and swim around Charleston on October 31. I have done both swims before but never almost back to back, i.e. three weeks apart. With my age at 70 on the Charleston swim....thoughts on recovery time between swims considering my age? I have done massage therapy in prep for both swims in past to help. I train 4-5 days a week with 18-20k yards. Does three weeks give me enough recovery time? Swim times for each swim are about 5:30. So not really very fast.
