Been swimming this morning and pool was nearly empty.

Decided to do some laps i.e. not touching walls and all i can say is its darn hard work when you dont touch off or stop for a rest. Did 50 mins (equivilant to 80 lengths and only touched down about 3 or 4 times) - im not looking forward to this open water swim malarky...

Carl, my biggest problem when swimming outside is the sighting you have to do, I seem to be unable to swim in a straight line.

Not tried it yet but have trouble going in a straight line in the lanes. Just today I was sharing a lane with one other guy and he asked if I could stay over a bit becasue I was going to near the middle.

All will improe with practice I hope but can see the disadvantage of not going straight - i.e. swimming a few hundred meters than needed.

Ill more than likely be switching between Breast Stoke and crawl for my tries this year so ill be able to correct myself and swin stright during the breastroke.

Yeah you can always stick a few strokes of breast stroke in to get your bearings.
