Pool vs Open Breathing
After many (MANY) years out of the pool i am in training for a 2km open water swim happening in February.
Just a couple of pool sessions a week to which i will add some open water as it warms up a little here.
On the weekend i did my first open water race, 1km. While i was happy with my time (16:30) i found i went straight into a 2-stroke breathing instead of my normal 4 stroke in the pool.
Am i losing anything here?
