Before my HIM I was training exclusively on my gym's pool. I would finish the 1.2 miles in 40 mins. Wich I thought was very reasonable. But during the race, using a wetsuit I finished the swim in 56 minutes.
This week, I went for a 1000 meter ocean swim and I finished in 30 minutes (a lot!).
Is it normal to do more time in open water than in a swimming pool? or Am I doing something wrong? Does this happen to you?
