Hoping someone can offer some advice.

Swimming freestyle, after 100 - 150 meters I get the urge to stop and I know why ... poor breathing technique. As I exhale and mouth breaks water I then seem to over inhale. I'm sure relaxing is the answer but hard to master. I would like to breath normally and I am close but just can't seem to get into a relaxing rhythm of exhale / inhale. Are there methods to improve or should I just learn to push through it?

Thanks in advance
