I'm not a coach, but I'm also pretty new to TI. What I see, obviously, is what you pointed out, that your lower body is really low. I bet all the coaches will tell you to superman glide over and...

I can't answer your post, but it does make me wonder. First, you say you look for rest at 140 bpm. I take my heart rate also and need rest when it hits the 130+ range as well. But why is this? ...

So watching the Kona Ironman today on TV, I noticed how even the top swimmers had very poor form, at least compared to TI doctrine. I found it amazing to see that they could swim 2.4 miles in about...
