Hi Stuart, I'm recently using the same pattern - used to breathe every 2 switching side on every lenght before - and I really like it! The 4 consecutive strokes with eyes down are a very good stroke reset for me: they adjust alignment, rotation, symmetry and help setting a good rhythm too. And they are also a breathing reset, for when I need more time to exhale.
