Elbow lead, ragdoll forearm, painting water with back of hand, head resting on a huuuuuge pillow! Sorry so blurry.

Sun Yang from a 400m race I recently watched on youtube. I can't get over the size of the pillow he is resting his head on.

I actually thought it was a pic of some TI'er on the forum (or you, rcrawf). Knowing that it's a pic of one of the best swimmers worldwide exemplifying TI standard technique is just awesome.

Now, this pic has totally brought my attention to the poorest factor of my technique: recovery. I used to think the 'TI triangle' was a kind of foible; maybe a flourish for those who could do it. Now I know I'm wrong. But I still can't do it. Can someone help here?

Maybe you could take another look at my recovery from this video and tell me what to do differently: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dsAYEC30fBw
