Fellow CrossFitters:

I am gradually immersing myself in the CrossFit methodology/philosophy. I understand & agree with Coach's view that endurance athletes are lacking in critical fitness components. I also am sensitive to the theories holding that L.S.D. (long slow distance,) "trains the chaos" out of cardiac & cellular function, and might very well be unhealthful.

Still, I enjoy, when I can, swimming laps, or walking with Exerstrider poles, or a long slow C2 row, etc...How do I keep these as a part of my life optimally?

Just keep it varried...WOD and whenever you want some of these longer sessions. If you notice your max power, strength declining maybe back off on the LSD! lol! I have a few friends who LOVE long long runs, swims etc. It would be a huge loss of quality of life for them to discontinue these activities. Will they reach their 'ultimate althletic potential"? No...but they are happy. That is certianly worth a lot.
