Okay I'm an idiot!
Well today I decided to try breathing every two strokes instead of my usual four. And low and behold I had more O2 for my muscles and a lot more speed too. However, I do want to nail lateral breathing down. It seems that every 3 strokes, or one left and then right, would be the optimal...right?
Starting Monday I'm going to focus on weak-side breathing (left) and begin to incorporate bi-lateral by the end of the week if possible. Any drills you all might impart would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
