And I just did my first non-stop, continuous, no pauses, no stopping, no swapping to another stroke, full 50m length of front crawl. I was hanging to the edge and gasping for breath at the end, but I did it. And then, just to prove it wasn't a fluke, I did 4 more.
This, for me, is as exciting as the first time I cycled up Ashley Terrace in Edinburgh without having to go into bottom gear.

You may want to try this drill

You have great eyes mate. The whole story is that there's a bit of a hoola hop mystery, as you pass over 40yo in this gesture. Upper body feels stiff and it drives me nut. I don't want to loose fluidity with age, as I feel that fluidity is very important for optimal performance.
So I totally agree that on my slow execution, I sacrifice a tight posture in favor of more fluidity in the undulation. As if I was focusing on trying to create a perfect sine wave, but was failing at this cycle after cycle after cycle.
You casually mention "your book". Is this already published or still in the writing stage? If already published, please, please let us have details of how we can get this as I am sure that many of us here would love to buy a copy. If not yet published, then I very much look forward to the day it is!
In the meantime, keep up the excellent work here
