Great story. Thanks for sharing. I've never done real open water swimming, but it sounds like 1500M outdoors in 35 is really good! I think my take away is the cautionary tale of trying to do everything right. Just going in with a 1-2-or-3 focus points is enough. I think I'll work that into my routine. Do 400 concentrating on wide tracks, then the next 400 on laser head, then the next 400 focusing on my catch.
