And or use the brain in you head.  I almost took a long swim crossing the small channel some years ago at Peg Leg.  Didn't start across at the right spot and stubbornly push on since I was only a ouple steps from the other bank...couldn't push past the flow and after a few minutes could barely stay on my feet.....definitely not using my head that day.
