I posted a question -"Can you still be a real swimmer if you can't swim freestyle?" (crawl). This was taped a year ago. Since then, I've straightened head position so that I am looking down at the bottom of the pool. My kick is still awful, despite being an ex runner for 30 years. I do plenty of kickboard and no kickboard drills to improve my kick, with little results. I think my underwater pull is better, although I still sometimes drop my elbows. I'm so confused--I've done all the TI drills, and others given by swim team swimmers, and have watched countless videos. This stroke eludes me and it makes me crazy.
Thanks for your input!
