Learning to exhale
Now that I have signed up for the tri, I fugured I better get in the pool on my own. I biked to the gym and actually spent a productive 30 minutes swimming. Since I started working with my coach I have noticed a huge change, but she couldn't see my big flaw- I hold my breath under the water. This causes my to get tired really easily, which I just figured out. I have now learned that it is much easier to exhale under water and be ready to inhale when my head surfaces, well duh! After this miraculous discovery I was able to swim 6 laps without stopping instead of my normal 2. What a boost to my conifence.
