Good post Tom
I am in process of recovering from an operation on my right carotid artery to remove the 90% plaque buildup. The Dr says not to swim for another six weeks. This will result in me being out of the water for almost three months. My three swims each week are the high lite of my fitness regime for this 82 year old body.
Your post about the kick timing has me chomping at the bit to explore that timing. I have been kicking a little earlier than what you describe. I will spend the dry time ahead visualising your timing sequence.
Am very grateful for this forum and remember Terry and family with grateful appreciation.
May we swim with ease at the speeds we choose.
