Hello Vincent from Normandie France 47 years old.. Haven't a good english but i''ltry to be clear. Like many others ,i was bored of swimming freestyle with stuggle .I am a black belt karate and i run trails in the nice normandie tracks and forests and was looking for a "zen"swimming way.And with ti ,l found this way.Great feeling of gliding ,and this feeling to be accepted by water .Yesterday,at the pool, l discovered the importance of "spearing" the elbow,high and forward,while before l thougt it was the arm to spear.When the elbow is gone,all the core follows this movement and create balance.Hope that this advice will help a little to progress... Rain today in Normandie !

An interesting thing is I found nearly all the 'tips' shared here were mentioned somewhere in Terry's book. But the problem is when people read the book, they might not be at that level to understand and remember everything. human brain can only focus on a 2 or 3 things at a time. So it's good to visit the forum to check other swimmers "discoveries", and it's always good to re-read the TI bibles.
