"No rush, no rush... Just taking it day by day. As my coach John says, '24 hours at a time.' That's helped me big time, to be honest... John always says, 'take it 24 hours at a time.'... So I only do things 24 hours at a time now, and it's helping me in me training, it's helping me in recovery. Shout out coach Kavanagh for that one. If youse want to give that a shot, 24 hours at a time, take things. It's all we can do."
