Re: Why do I get out swam by the old ladies? Please analyze my Swim Video [Borden]

The upper and lower halves of your body are disconnected. Your legs are kicking, your arms are moving, but they're not moving in synchronization. Freestyle swimming is a continuous movement from the tips of your fingers to the tips of your toes. The "rotation" you will hear people talk about is the critical component that links the stroke together and involves transferring the weight of your body from one side to the other. You don't have much rotation and your legs appear to be sinking a bit. This is probably the reason you are not getting much out of your pull.

Find a swim coach and work with them often. Listen to them and do what they say. Back off your running and biking if you need to, but you need to spend a lot of time in the water with someone who can help get you going.
