I think I will show this article to the persons in pools where I swim who complain about their workouts and/or the distance they swim.

Article does not say if they swim on a regular basis of any kind.

Must've been a morning practice, followed about 12 hours later with an afternoon/evening practice. That's how I'd do it in 14 hours! :D
