Hard Work vs Practice
Hard work is the sweat and tears you put toward a single task” … Practice “trains and refines your body and your mind to perform a single task beautifully, effortlessly, strongly and gracefully

So, while off-the-water training is very important, make no mistake that practice is a critical component to doing your best both individually and as part of a team.  Though life schedules can become hectic, do your best to make it out to practice regularly, your body will approve ;)
