Swimming in a wetsuit

Decided to try swimming in my wetsuit this evening in preparation for having to swim in one for the Great North Swim later in the year. It makes quite a difference being slightly more buoyant! Front crawl seems a tad easier but breast stroke much harder being more horizontal in the water.

Swam 800 metres (32 x 25mtr lengths, so half a mile) in 22 minutes, over half of which was front crawl so all in all quite pleased!
