Help - Heavy legs!
Been swimming regularly for about a year but still find swimming with a pull buoy makes a remarkable difference to my swim technique. For a 15 minute swim I struggle to complete 28 lengths (25m pool) with what feels like an untidy thrash up and down the lanes, struggling to breath. Add a pull buoy and I can comfortably complete another 5 or 6 at a comfortable and relaxed pace. I feel like a completely different swimmer. Most frustrating. Have started to try and swim downhill, press the T etc, but so far felt little difference, other than putting my head deeper in the water is making breathing harder. Any advice out there. I have been told that I may have negative buoyancy, heavy runners legs etc. Short of reducing them in length, what can I do? Any tips? [&:]
