The professional or amateur athlete works his butt off on the field, bringing the ball closer to the try line or the goal posts, or he hits the ball out of the ballpark and runs his butt off to get around those bases and back home! He needs to recover after a hard day's work! There's nothing like a recovery session for rugby players, footy players, or any other athlete, especially when you have the deep blue sea or a pool to soothe your sore muscles!
Ah...The joys of playing a sport, recovering afterwards, and then training again for the next match!
