I know this is a "running" blog family, but I hope some of the triathletes will read my blog and help me resolve my swimming issues.
#1 I have a hard time breathing, I have the mechanics down for the front crawl, but by the end of lap one, my lungs are burning. Then I switch to breast stroke for a length and do another two front crawl laps. All my other body parts are able to do the front crawl without incidence, but I am not breathing effectively. I breathe on alternating sides every three strokes. Help me, please!
#2 I have chapped skin from the chlorine, some embarrassing areas too! Any ideas to protect my delicate skin?
I know I have a third one, but I can not think of it right now!!
