Work on a more patient lead arm and marionette recovery.

you could work on being more streamlined on your side. like andreas said in another post, stretch!
and, i think being able to relax is one of the hardest, not the easiest, things to do.

Hi Pat: I think you are slightly over-rotating when breathing but I know I do
this too!

Way to go SplashingPat! I've been trying to figure out how to get a video that I could post.

I was admiring your 2 beat kick in the 2nd video, but then around 17 sec. it looked like your left leg kicked when your right leg was supposed to. I could be full of it though. Anyone else see that?

Pat, I admire you for pushing thru the video shyness. You look well on the way to mastering the TI crawl. The pointers the previous people have given you are right on.
Enjoy the trip
May we all swim with ease.

Hey Hey! way to go Pat !!!

I pretty much agree with the advice given . Try to streamline a little more , roll a little less when you breathe with a more patient lead arm , relax the recovery arm with the hand just over the water and lead more with the elbow. You may be lifting the head slightly when you breathe . Also try to work on breathing on your left side to even out your stroke .

Hi Pat,
Wished I could reply like you.
Since you are not a black cat
In the water, but relaxed too.

Have nothing new to add,
Perhaps only some swing
When lengthening your vessel and
Be patient; sail on your extended wing.

“Go on, and read to the fulL
Oh all these letters for U.
Or take the first of each line, this one ends with a ‘C’
Dally not though, ‘cause you have to take each at the end too,” said the daleK.
