Coach Suzanne is correct as are her suggestions on how to fast forward your swimming. Stop worrying about the neck and adjust your practice to include push-offs focusing on a streamlined position until you need a breath. stop, and repeat. Then move on to skating, superman glide etc as suggested.

It might seem like backtracking but it will be time well spent. And tbh, I do the exact same thing every pool swim during my warm up. It works wonders.
