I'll try to make this short. I can bike and run forever without getting tired. However swimming always makes me winded. I have tried breathing every 2 strokes.. 3 strokes and up to 6 strokes.. I feel most natural at 3 but i'm always winded after about 200m. I don't think my technique is too terrible. Has any of you ever felt like this when you began to "really" swim? What helped you overcome? Yes I've only been trying to swim for about 2 months.. and I have only had a slight improvement. It's kind of frustrating.
