Lol! Entry is tricky. I had L3 Endurance work on me with this. Basically, if you stretch too far out before you enter you risk losing balance and sinking your hips. My problem was I entered and went too deep before starting my pull. So he had me work on starting the pull higher in the water after entry. Not necessarily stretch further. That said open water swimming can vary with waves. You need to feel that. I've heard a lot of OW swimmers say they stretch out further on entry and almost slap the water. Especially I it's choppy and you need to get your entry over the chop. Hope that makes sense.
