Afterword: Can Mindful Swimming Enrich Your Life? Appendix: Becoming Fit and Fishlike: Sample Total Immersion Practice Sets Where to Go for What: Your Directory to Resources for Better Total Immersion Swimming Index Total Immersion — Introduction — Let me ask you three questions: 1. Does swimming make you feel good—both physically and in overall satisfaction? 2. Do you feel you know what it takes to get better—not guesswork, but guaranteed? 3. Are you progressing steadily—even if slowly—toward greater efficiency and understanding?

But for some people, it’s not that easy. As soon as their hand hits the water, years of bad habits take hold and the arm automatically heads right for the bottom. It does, that is, until I ask them to pretend they’re reaching for the wall as they would on the last stroke of each lap. As far as the muscles are concerned, that’s different—now the arm goes out nice and straight and long. And the body glides along more easily behind. Don’t rush the process. Leave your hand extended before starting to pull back.

So now we can begin to make that swimming-speed formula, V = S × SR, work for us instead of against us. First, you have to learn how to position your body so it moves as far as it possibly can with each stroke (SL); then you have to get fit enough to take those strokes at a higher rate (SR). But not too high. Virtually every swimmer I see already has all the SR they’ll ever need; it’s the SL they’re lacking. They always make their most dramatic improvements when they give up a bit of their SR in order to gain a lot of SL.
