Good morning all, and happy swimming.
I am a 64 year old distance swimmer, and I typically use flip turns during my freestyle, but I run out of gas after about 300 yards. At times, I literally feel I am going to pass out. When I revert to open arm turns, I have no problem completing 500 or 1000 yards.
Wondering if anyone else has had this problem. I want to be able to maintain a decent speed throughout my events, but I also want to survive them! Any suggestions are welcomed and appreciated.
