Today I started working to hold my breath longer so I can remain calm under water. Starting with a training tip from a colleague. Method: Start and hold your breath for 30 seconds, breath for 30, hold breath for 1 minute, breath for a minute, hold breath as long as possible. Repeat at responsible frequencies. My first attempt, or baseline is 1:33 seconds. Hoping I can add a minute to this baseline by mid-November. Mark Healey wrote about his methods to stay fit and prepared on Surfline.com which looks intense.
Regardless, I’ll need my lungs in a few months to be ready..
