I must, must, must work on turns this week. They are really terrible and I need to focus on my push off the wall so that I stop swimming right back into the wake of coming into the wall. Basically feels like trying to swim up through quicksand. I'm going to check out some of the drills illustrated on GoSwim.tv, but if anyone out there has any drills that they'd like to share I'd love to know about them!
