    Re: The Breaststroke Lane

    Okay, this is not the place for me to hang out. I STINK at breast stroke. Like I'm 50% slower in breast than free or fly (in a 50 or 100). And notably slower than in back (though not quite 50% slower).

    Anyway, I still do all strokes. This morning, while working on breast, my left knee did something weird. First time it felt like it got a little loose, just below the kneecap, front interior. Finished the rep a bit gimpy. Got out, walked on it, felt okay. Tried teh next rep, got about 3 strokes in, and it did the same thing, suddenly and a whole lot worse. Had to stop for the day. Knee hurt for another hour or so, but didn't otherwise cause me any issues.

    It didn't pop out of joint, but that is kind of what it felt like. Probably poor technique, I continue to try to figure out how to swim this stroke. The fact that the only thing in the pool less flexible than me is the ladder doesn't help, and I'm trying to overcome that....

    Anyone know what I'm talking about, and have any advice on how to cope?
