Try thinking about the other foot for starters. I think the one with your weight behind it can do its job without your help now. Shift your focus to pulling up and back with the other one. You can actually try dropping your heel slightly as it reaches the bottom of the stroke and make like you're scraping crap off your shoe. This'll take your stroke up around the back and before you know it you're going down again!
