novaswimmer: you and I likely are the two lonely outliers lol. I understand you completely. As long as I have a tiny bit of forward motion, I can exploit this movement to get some planing effect to minimise my leg sinking. It's not perfect, but it's manageable. I think I'm slowly getting better at it, or getting all the tricks to work at once, belly breathing, subtle balance skill, streamlining skill, stroke angulation management skill, maybe, I don't know, but my working on lowering SPL at a given fixed low TT rate whole stroke is slowly getting less strained and still achieving a reasonable (for me) low SPL which is ever so slowly inching downward still, I think.
