If you're sinking when you breath, make sure you're not breathing and
looking back. that's just plain bad for everything, and LOTS of
swimmers do it. Try looking to the side, not straight up, and if that
feels good, look to the side and even forward a little! If you keep
your head up, you will keep your body up. If you look back and down,
you're gonig to go back and down.
As far as your breathing goes, i don't know.. besides keeping it up :)

I misread you original post and thought it referred to 20 stokes per fifty
meters instead of 25....so I figured maybe it was cycles instead of strokes...
