No, not on first pull.....I do an open turn usually all the time....
so I breathe on the 2nd or 3rd stroke off the wall to try maintaining a streamline.....but after a set of breast transitioning to free, I have to swim a few lengths with 3 breaths to one side then alternate to 3 breaths on the other
Like Streak said -- it's all about a PERSONAL best....the clock is there for mostly me to get in and out of the water....my best part of the day (for many, many years) is right after swimming...
Streak, ya got me going today!!!
