I'm doing really well with my weights and cardio. Infact, my trainer said I'm on my own cuz I apparently have it down. I am lacking on my swimming area... what do you recommend for building endurance? My shoulders get so tired. I have only been swimming freestyle since August and am up to swimming a 100 well, but then I feel like I need to catch my breath. Is it just practice or is there something I should be doing to increase my laps?
I've been swimming with a floaty between my legs and really working my arm strength. Talking with some people, it sounds like in triathalons (I'm training for my first next summer), you only really use your arms, but some say you still use your legs. It's rather confusing. I'm still trying to breath without swallowing the pool.
Well, I've come a long way, but I'm still struggling in the pool. My trainer is going to start back up with me in the pool next week. This will be good. :p
