Good afternoon all. I’ve been offline for some time but keeping an eye on the thread. Been putting in quite a lot of time in the pool “working on my technique” which consists of trying to keep my stroke as long as possible and my hips as high as possible (not easy for those of us with the natural buoyancy of a bowling ball). While it feels much better to me (under a bit of control may be a better way to express this sensation) I am not going any faster through the water. As I’m self-coached (swim clubs intimidate me) I’m looking for some way to give my sessions some direction. Amy advice on this. Incidentally I’m considering asking a friend with an underwater camera (he dives for fun – no accounting for taste) if he could film me in a pool but not sure what I should be looking for.
PP (not trying to kill the sale Stephen K - honest ) I Did actually pick up a copy of "Total Immersion: The Revolutionary Way to Swim Better, Faster and Easier" last week for £1.60 + £.1.95 postage from ebay which I reckoned was on a par with picking it up in a charity shop - have only read first few chapters and am finding it a bit evangelical I await the see the results when I try to apply the principals in the pool
