a clip is really absolutely not an option for me. I've been in the water since I was a toddler and breathing out through my nose is really an instinctive reaction at this point for me. I'd end up popping my ears if I clipped my nose and being generally very uncomfortable. I did work on breathing in through my mouth on my swim last night and I was successful, didn't swallow too much water either. Also, when I say I get water up my nose, it's never much - just enough that I know it's there, not enough to interrupt my breathing. sorry, might be gross tmi, but there you have it.
