Her race takes less than 25 seconds to complete, but for Olympian Dara Torres a typical training day is at least six hours. The 50-meter freestyle swimming star balances that hectic schedule with being a mom to five-year-old Tessa and the recovery regimens that come with being a 44-year-old elite athlete. Watch Torres’ balancing act, something every busy triathlete can relate to, in this video hosted by Bob Babbitt. First, watch part one here. Then in part two above, Torres takes us through some of the innovative training techniques she’s using to stay fast in her 40s.
