The science behind one woman’s quest to swim 60 hours in shark-infested waters

"Diana Nyad will soon attempt to swim 103 shark-infested miles from Cuba to Key West — without a shark cage.

It will probably take her 60 hours. That means if she jumped in the water at noon on a Monday, she’d swim all day Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, plus the two nights in between, and then arrive in Florida Wednesday at midnight, not having slept a wink.

Nyad will also probably endure these other trials: countless jellyfish stings, hallucinations and skin rubbed raw and a tongue swollen by excessive exposure to sea salt.

When Nyad tried to swim this route before, she lost 29 pounds in almost 42 hours of swimming before failing to reach her goal.

But when she attempted this feat before, it was 1978, and Nyad was 28.

She is now 61."

Check out more details (especially changes Nyad has made in her food / fuel choices!) at the above url!
