Wednesday's Shoulder Woes

I love swimming outdoors/longcourse at FPAC but I'm ready to move in now. I feel weary, beat-up, and a bit burnt out.
My left shoulder and neck have been bothering me a bit lately. It doesn't hurt when I swim, but it aches most of the rest of the day. The left side of my neck is SUPER tight too. I have some exercises that help loosen things a bit(when I do them).
I think I need to bi-lateral breath more and strengthen my deltoids to get total relief.
I am going to change some of my bad habits after Big Shoulders (10 days from now) but I don't want to do anything too drastic right now.
I decided to take another swim day off today. I haven't taken 2 days in a row off for about a year.
I've done my exercises 2 X today (1 X more before bed). I think I'm going to go out for a run now, if my knee will hold up that is.
If anyone has any good shoulder/deltoid strengthning exercises PLEASE POST THEM!
I need something that pulls my scapulas downward to stabilize my shoulder.
Thanks in advance! (That's what I'm trying to avoid!)
