It does get easier (NOTE - not easy LOL) the more you do it -like anything I guess.

I know many people do not use it - even in tri's BUT it is a good thing to have some practice at just in case you get in a situation that breathing on the same side isn't working....waves, people etc on that side of you

Yes, MANY BCTC'ers. If you go to my page and scroll down through my friends and find wittycitygirl, that is Sara, go to her page and on her dashboard she has a list of user names and who they are on BT.

The crawl is certainly a challenge, sticking to it consistently...!

His technique reminds me of the Galloway running technique...similar concept.

Thx for the share!

BT alao has "Learning to Swim" articles Month 1 through Month 5. They are pretty good too.

I have been working on my bilateral breathing - it is tough
