swim breathing help
I am trying to learn to swim so i can do my first tri, been a non swimmer for 48 years.
just managed my first 25m length of the pool but i am knackered when i get there due to the fact that i am not breathing properly. I have tried lots of different things 2 stroke, 3 stroke, 4 stroke but i always get so far and then run out of air, it almost feels like I am not getting all the air out each breath and eventually I am unable to breathe in as I am already full of used air ( if that makes sense)
I tend to take large gulps of air but have recently started to try and take smaller breathes, I am not really sure if this is helping or not yet.
I have looked online but there is so much contradicting info that I cant sort out the wheat from the chaff.
So has anybody got any experience they could pass on or show me a link to the correct way of breathing. I have until September to get up to 500m lol
