I was told that I have a good dolphin kick, but my fly still doesn't feel right. Coach says I need to relax!:-( I don't know how to relax any more! Oh well, I'll keep working on it.

    Hey TJ,

    I think relaxing during fly is an oxymoron. If I relaxed during fly, it would mean I streamlined off the wall and glided to a stop.

    Maybe you will figure it out, but I hate those people who make fly look easy. I think they lack shoulder blades or something.

    I hear ya'! As it is, I forget to SDK off the wall because I'm thinking about how to glide as far as possible without expending any energy!
