Obviously the Achilles heel of my triathlon training is going to be swimming. Sunday was sucktastic in that I could barely do 50m. On my back I’m great because I can breath but the front crawl is killing me.
The feedback from my instructors is I have great form (yay!) but I seem to have a mental block with the breathing. About a lap in I start to feel like I’m not getting enough air and start to panic at which point I stop so I can catch my breath.
Right now I’m taking breaths at every third stroke but am wondering if switching it up to every second stroke might help?
Any advice y’all can give would be greatly appreciated.
