I didn't complete a 100km ultra by my 50th. 80km achieved before 53 years, still working on it...

Pairs of lengths
Last week I proved to myself that I could manage four 33 yard lengths in quick succession, even if the style was scrappy and I took a few big breaths at each turning point. So this week, having loosened up a bit, I worked to do most of my lengths as pairs, albeit with slight extra breaths sometimes. The trick was to go steadily and force myself to slow down as I feel breathless, not to make a hasty dash for the end as panic set in. That might be an advance on a few weeks ago as I now only do bilateral breathing. That aspect has gone from forced to habitual without me really knowing when the transition occurred.
