In the Blue - I now have a Zone3 Aspire - old one was a Blue Seventy Reaction. I'm not sure the Thorpe distances are accurate. I have consistently recorded the 750 as about 780.  Also recorded the 1500 loop as nearer to 1600.

Open water V pool swim speeds

Haven't done any pool swims recently so can't really compare. But, have a new wetsuit this season and my OW swims have generally been quicker than last year off less pool training.  Beginning to think my old wetsuit possibly had a touch too much buoyancy around the hips/legs and lifted my lower body too high in the water.

If your OW venue does wetsuit hire, might be worth trying some to see if it makes any difference.

Feeling funny when OW swimming.

Chalk it up to a bad day in the office Graeme and put it behind you. Take a rest day tomorrow - or at least stay off the bike - and hopefully you'll be fine next time out.
