I know exactly what you mean about feeling "all over the place" at first, but I'm doing better with each TT practice--actually my progress toward being comfortable at new tempos has been surprisingly quick.
As for the slower repeats, what you describe above is exactly what happened to me. I adjusted by REALLY slowing down my recovery but making sure the motion never stops, so at slower tempos it feels like super slow motion. I've been paying a lot of attention to recovering as slowly as I can so there's no dead spot in the stroke where I have to pause. That slow recovery also really encourages me to extend my lead arm even further and glide for a longer time, really resisting starting the catch too soon.
