Breathing issue resolution
I thought I would post this to see if it would help anyone else. I as a beginner have been suffering from being excessively winded from my swimming having to have frequent rest breaks in open water. My breathing pattern has always been three strokes then breathe. I then read a post called 'Open water breathing patterns' which suggested different patterns of breathing. I tried the three-two three pattern on my last open water outing and managed to complete 1500 metres non-stop and I thought I had a fitness issue!
