Relaxing is the key to everything, especially swimming

In honor of my biggest swim week ever, 12,600 yards this week, I just thought that I'd comment on the importance of relaxation.  It's remarkable that trying to swim harder often just leads to getting tired, and not swimming faster.  Relaxing is also key in biking and running, but it's a little less obvious in these disciplines.  That said, I've been learning that when I'm doing a really hard workout and things get tough, I try to relax, and that allows me to make it through the workout.

Relaxing is also the key to life.  Taking a deep breath and just trying to relax is often the key to a challenging situation.

So, my thought for the day, Relax!
