Salvo do you do much OW swimming where you are ( I presume you are Italian)
Hi Warren, yes, sadly it seems the golden days of swim forums are past, a few years ago the community of active forum members was definitely bigger and vibrant. I've been a lurker for quite some time, partly I regret it
Yes, I'm italian and actually swim ow only in summer. OW swimming is not much popular where I live, I hardly ever find other swimmers "training" in ow when I go. But those few ow events they organize in summer are full of super fast pool swimmers who are fast in ow as well (despite not swimming in ow): people who swim 5k in 1h something.
Where do you live instead, to have your ow season closing in 2 weeks? I love ow swimming but for training and improving as a swimmer nothing beats the pool imho.
