After well deserved Christmas holidays Emilie is back in the pool. So far she has taken part in two competitions: the Turku Super Games and the Swedish Finnish Sports Association’s Championships 2017. She has also participated in the national age group team camp in Vierumäki (January 26th-29th).
During the week ahead of the TSG she measured her heartbeats (24/7) to find out how fast and how well she recovers from the swimming sessions. She is still waiting for the results of the analysis. She has measured her heartbeats once before and that was a couple of years ago when she suffered from exhaustion due to bad recovery. In order to avoid stress and to enhance recovery it’s very important to learn more about the own body and what factors affect the well-being and performance.
