4) Don't be afraid to go fast. What may seem fast and sloppy is often just "unfamiliar." The feeling that you've abandoned your skill set doesn't always mean you HAVE abandoned it. Sometimes it just means your body is unaccustomed to how reliable mechanics feel at higher intensities.
So true, that's what I'm recently doing and realizing. Moreover, what you describe on point 3 sounds pretty close to USRPT, you could be interested about it.

Good swim!
