Hi al. I'm new to the forum, and new to tri. I had my first swimming lesson last week and managed a few strokes of FC. I went to the pool on Saturday to get some practice in before tomorrow nights lesson and struggled like anything. Every time I put my face in the water I got a gob, and nose, full of water and came to the surface coughing and spluttering. Also, when I breathe, I get a mouth full of water. What am I doing wrong and how do I fix it?
lots of people are joining the sport but think the only way of getting faster is to swim up and down the pool again and again
