Thursday 5/6/10 Evening
Continued to work on my stroke. Got tips on arm positioning. Still having trouble relaxing with my kicks and my breathing. I might have to go back to breathing every 2 strokes. My biggest problem is remembering to exhale - I tend to hold my breath and then my lungs aren't empty when I come up for air and I can't get enough, which then tends to exhaust me faster. Kinda like holding your breath and running - can't do it for too long.
Man, swimming is technical! Lots of details..... on the plus side, learned how to do flip turns.. still getting water up my nose..
... I need to exhale better through my nose.
