I'm training for my first sprint triathlon in August 08. The only concern I have is the 0.5 mile swim. I started practicing and noticed right away that I'm not a very strong swimmer. I just can't seem to find a pace that also allows me to breath comfortably. For example, yesterday I only made it 10 minutes (6 laps in a 50 meter pool)before I had to stop. And this wasn't even open water.
Does anyone have any training tips on stroke and breathing technique?
Any comments will be greatly appreciated.
