Thank you, Coach. It'll take discipline, but I'll keep trying. Based on my video, what drills would you recommend? I have a couple TI videos I can go back to watch for reference.

Wish I could, Coach, but it's a bit cost-prohibitive. Certainly something I would like to do, but I'd also have to add in the $$ for lodging Saturday night. Perhaps someday.

On the positive side, I'm getting closer to ironing out the odd C-shaped pull, and the "grabbing the ladder rung" metaphor helped my visualization. On the down side, I think I am still getting worse,...

Thank you, Sclim, for not just the compliment, but also for helping me realize I'm not the only swimmer in the history of swimming who has ever regressed.

Thanks for the input, Michael. I have a Finis swimmers snorkel and use it frequently to work on form and muscular endurance. I had not thought of using it to get my breathing timing down. Exhaling...

Thank you Zen. I do feel like I'm running out of breath most of the time. I believe I pause on my breathing side arm (right arm) in an effort to get more air. It looks (to me anyways) that I need to...
