Default Liolio

Mainly my body position that has broken down - I'm not nearly horizontal anymore, but uphill. Stroke count is up, and I'm much slower (ca 30% slower) than I used to be, although I can consistently get air now, and over a long distance, however me swimming that long distance is such a pain to watch. Can't swim with my earlier stroke count/tempo/speed now even if I hold my breath and go one length without breathing.

Could have to do with a substantial, stress-related weight loss and weight distribution change (lost 10% of bodyweight when I had already been very skinny to begin with) and likely, the associated loss of strength (which I can feel), and/or some detrimental technical flaws I got myself into when swimming without coaching/feedback for months, all the while trying to learn to breathe.
