Default It takes me too long to warm up :(.

BACKGROUND:

I am a mid 50s male who has been swimming with a Masters Group 2 to 3 times a week for now over a year. The swims are 1.5 hours in length and the total workout is between 2500 and 3000 metres in length (about 1000 m to 1200 m) for the warm up and 1500 m to 1800 m for the main set) . I am part of a slower lane but I am able to complete the workout distance in the 90 minutes.

The "Problem":

To get to the point, I take too long to become comfortable (warmed up) in the swim. "Comfortable" to me means at ease breathing. It is much more enjoyable for me at the 1500 metre mark than it was at say....500 m.

Do others find similarly? That is, it takes you at least the warm-up (an me more) to you find one's "sea legs" ;)?
