Me too, I think it's just the nostalgia from my swimming days.I actually like the smell of chlorine, weird I know..
i was skeptical how it would go. but it works just fine. ipod shuffle strapped to the back of the goggle strap. phones only run a few inches from the back of your head to your ear and are fitted like cheapie rubber noise reduction sets.I just can't imagine swimming with headphones on..
Ear on your shoulder when your breathing.Started swimming laps for the first time today to improve fitness etc. I managed 3 x 50m laps (2 freestyle, 1 backstroke) at about 1:20 each, which I assume is really slow. Gotta start somewhere I guess, but I do feel better afterwards which is good. Is there any way to stop myself from swallowing water when I breath? I'm probably doing something wrong.
get used to it. bilateral breathing is a necessity if you're going to do regular swimming. i'd probably do a couple hundred meters breathing every 4th stroke, then cruise on bilateral breathing for about half hour, then i get tired and start breathing every 2nd or 3rd.Been having a bit of a go at breathing bilaterally this week, surprisingly getting the hang of it, need to rest more though because you get less air swimming I guess.
I disagree with the other posters. Don't breathe bialaterally until you've got the hang of breathing every second stroke. You should be blowing bubbles by the time your elbow is pointing towards the roof, so I'd say your breathing too long. it will help if you make sure you keep one eye in the water when you are breathing as well.Thanks I'll start doing that. I also get a bit of the water that splashes up when my arm comes over, is this just bad technique?
