Hey, all; I just reviewed the whole "how long to master bilateral breathing" thread in this O2 in H2O: Breathing Skills section, and Coach Stuart McDougall listed a nice refresher list on the way...

Today another slightly puzzling difficult swim. This time I had my TT as per normal, but still only hit 20 SPL a few times, despite really, really trying hard. Maybe that's it. Trying too hard....

Yeah, whenever I get discouraged at apparent lack of further progress, it's helpful to think back at how helpless I was at the very beginning of this process, and it renews my spirits!

I'm 67, and was a splasher until I started TI 2-1/2 years ago, after deciding to learn swimming and biking so I could compete in Triathlon. I was also terrified of cold water which created huge...

Yeah, I almost forget now, that when I started this TI thing a couple years ago, I absolutely could not breath on the left. Took me a long time and brutal drills to get me to breath on the left more...

Hey, I just realised I've become very fixed in my ways. I breathe every 3rd stroke, and I've fallen into a fixed routine of breathing on the 3rd, 6th 9th, 12th, 15th, 18th 21st and 24th (when I used...

I just had a thought -- at some point of time, in spite of my reluctance to swim with shared lanes, I might actually try to use the presence of another swimmer ahead of me to practice drafting. This...

I'm sure that is part of the mix of possibilities, and even probabilities. But what I intend and hope to do is focus on lowering SPL, and in the process, which will be a zig-zag path, I'm sure, by...

LOL -- you got that right!



Don't get frustrated. The advice is actually generally correct, just that it may not work for us exactly like they say. Or rather, I think we have to work much harder to...
