Why do you like swimming TI-style? The best motivation for swimming TI-style that I know of is that it feels good. Is that something you care about? It is, of course, possible to have multiple goals when swimming. You can be a competitive swimmer and also swim because you enjoy the feeling.
I do like the relaxed sensation when swimming TI style. I like the sense of balance. Especially swimming slowly. If you can swim slowly in balance you are doing many things well. I think it is a great foundation regardless of what your preferred stroke style is.
