I've been studying/doing TI for about 8 months now. Did not take a clinic but studied videos carefully and read forum messages for every detail. I've been lap swimming for about 15 years for exercise but it was never much fun. I've finally put it all together and it feels great! Biggest problems I had were breathing and kicking. Finally mastered breathing. A subtle change like keeping my chin tucked in, looking straight down and relaxed, enabled me to streamline and rotate properly to breathe. With kicking, I finally figured my toes/ankles were not pointed enough. The two-beat came easy after that. Anyway, its fun now and I look forward to it. I swim at the Jones Center off Longpoint Rd. In Mt. Pleasant at about 7:30 a.m. Good luck with the class and drills. Its a process!
