Yes! That's another thing I have noticed, if I happen to be swimming in the lane that has the jet blasting the water into the pool, the force of the jet in my face can practically bring me to a standstill as I'm approaching the wall. It's like swimming upstream.
Which begs yet another question, has anyone else noticed that swimming in one direction often feels different from swimming back in the other direction?
And speaking of dreams, I have a recurring one where I'm swimming and there's no water in the pool at all. I'm basically dragging myself forward along the concrete floor of the pool. Any interpretations?
