been trying to improve my swim times by swimming straighter and with less sighting of buoys. for years breathed every stroke on one side in races but trained in pool with a little alternate breathing. i'm now trying 6 full strokes one side, no breathe stroke, sight, then 6 breathe on other side, repeat,etc.
obviously in a pool you can only get some many strokes in before bump'in the wall......would be interested in any thoughts or experience on OW breathing pattern you like. thx
