The effort in the pool may not be such a waste, you have good cardiovascular performance from your bike riding and running muscles, swim muscles obviously still need miles. Much longer process for an adult than a child I should think. There may be rocket science to swimming at the elite level, but just getting reasonable pace and distance isn't terribly complicated.
