Swimming four miles easy

A couple days ago I talked to John Quackenbush about his upcoming swim. We talked for a good 25 minutes. One of the things he said that really stuck out as a good piece of advice I need to keep always in mind: Swim "as far as possible as effortlessly as possible". It isn't about how fast you do it, but how much distance you can get with the least amount of energy as possible. Like deep space exploration you could say.

So today I focused on staying loose and going as streamlined and smooth as possible. I focused on NOT kicking and just letting my feet kick just enough to stay up.
