Normal stretching . Kept warm sitting at pool watching people starting there swim

  • 01m 50s / 100 yards

I started wayyyyy in back with slow poeple and in 2 laps I caught 3 people and they third person I lap swam into my side of the lane on the way back he head butted. I lost focus and rhythm and took in about 4 gallons of water . did breast stroke to the way caught my breath and swam on and caught 1 more lady and out the pool. I hated the stairs, WHo builds a pool on the second floor.
What would you do differently?:

I would get myself better googles and swim much much faster burn my arms out since I can relax them on my bike for a few miles while they recoup .
