At age 50, this is the first time I have ever seen video of myself swimming. I can see my recovery is irregular, but that is probably because I'm really unfamiliar with open water. I think my stroke is probably more consistent in a pool.

It's only 28 seconds, but any suggestions for improvement are welcome.

I wish my recovery was as loose and relaxed as yours, no wonder I get so tired! Thanks for posting this.

About the only thing I could suggest is try to spear the entry a little more. You're a little slappy. Looks like a really good distance stroke to me!

It is unusual, that this is the first time you've actually seen your swimming style.

Excellent point. I do pull too many bubbles sometimes. Thanks Kirk.
