Default Freestyle Woes..

Progress has been very slow for me, I have the TI book, however, I feel as though it's not the same as the DVD's. At this point after a few months I'm still unable to swim steady for as long as I would like. I struggle with gasping for air. I can barely make 2 lengths of the pool without stopping for a rest. It's not that I'm in bad shape, I do Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and can can wrestle for non-stop forever...which is extreme cardio... this is clearly ( at least to me) an issue of breathing and effeciency...

Latest Discovery:

Keeping my recovering arm tucked by my side as I pull. When I first did this it was a miracle, I almost spun myself over. It made the roll absolutley effortless. I started working on this today in conjuction with ensuring when I would reach out I would not reach towards the center of my body line.

I am discovering that keeping my elbow close to my side it almost spins me over like a barrell. It's imperitive that my leading hand has to be out in front of my shoulder away from the centerline...

Does anyone have any tips or drills for working on this....
