Long Distance Swimming
"Others taking feveral Leaps towards the Bank of the River, at laft Leap in which their Feet foremoft, Body upright meeting the Water firft with their Buttocks and Calves of their legs…this way is very fafe, and the beft of all."
– Melchisédec Thevenot
The blue depths are as treacherous and pleasurable as any hazard of the Natural World. Constant paddling puts undue fatigue on the body and leads quickly to exhaustion. But not so for the Pilgrim who has learned Long Distance Swimming, as he has honed his muscles and mastered the movements and breathing necessary to last longer in deep water!
Greatly reduces the Phlegm cost of Swimming.
