I have the books and a hard drive full of all the videos I have purchased. I even have the T-shirt! I was also coached by a TI coach. I'm well in the TI program.

No, I'm not going anywhere. I don't participate in all the discussions as I don't always have anything worthwhile to say. I do integrate quite a lot of TI drills into my swimming and like swimming...

That's cool. Maybe I can find a club that will allow me to do similar. Seems even crazier for those who concentrate on open water swimming who don't want to do the club thing and not interested in...

True. It's not that it's directly relevant but when you are focused solely on kicking and you are using both legs in sync rather than opposing each other it's easier to feel things. That's why I like...

Club culture killing participation in swimming

I was never a competitive swimmer as a kid so didn't grow up in that club environment, or as I perceive it, reliant on that club environment. Like many TI practitioners I took up swimming more as an...

Wetsuits absolutely do keep you warm though I agree when the water is a certain temperature I wear 2 swim caps and ear plugs. The ear plugs I wear more because of balance. When my ears are chilled I...
