Ever wonder what a typical day looks like for an olympic athlete? Well, Olympic swimmer, Dara Torres definitely shows that her discipline is not solely reserved for her athletic performances, but is also apparent in the way she lives her life. Torres is a lifelong competitive swimmer and has represented the US in five Olympic games. She has won twelve Olympic medals in her career and has held three world records in her lifetime. She also has the title of being the oldest swimmer to be the US Olympic team.
How does she do it? Over the years, Sarah has developed the habit of becoming an early riser. She was sort of forced to become a morning person because she always had early swim practices and morning workouts. Torres also states that her mornings are often the busiest time out of her whole day. After she wakes up, she works out, makes a healthy breakfast, and then gets her daughter ready for school. She also makes sure to incorporate skin care into her morning routine, as she suffers from Psoriasis. Although Torres claims that she would love to wake up at 8:00am each morning, she typically wakes up at 6:30 because she has to let out her three dogs and get her daughter ready for school. She prefers to start her mornings off with an early workout and then follows her workout with a yogurt or oatmeal fueled breakfast. By 8:00 am she’s done more than most people do in a day, and that’s how she has become the amazing athlete she is.
