Default And another thing.......

I've been less of a contributor of late but remain interested in learning to swim better. Breathing (or lack of skilled breathing ability) has kept me on a plateau for way too long.

Something that seemed to produce better results today was setting a pattern, as I feel I must have seen here somewhere. This was to breathe to the left after 3 strokes then again (left) after two strokes, then breathe right after 3 strokes and then again (to the right) after two more strokes. After doing this for a couple of lengths I remembered to slow the stroke down. This and the pattern seemed to help. It actually brought back the early learning days when I was anxious for the next swim day to try it all over again.

If you're not swimming; then you should be skiing......
