Swimming in winter

Hey, I have a salt water swimming pool which I love swimming, but I'd like to think ahead about what to do about swimming in the autumn/winter months as my pool starts to feel like a giant ice block :P

This is gonna be a very strange question, but is it weird to wear a wetsuit in the pool? Honestly, I don't see the difference between the ocean and a swimming pool, so I guess wearing a swimsuit is ideal? Is that strange to do so?

Re: Swimming in winter

Nothing wrong with wearing a wetsuit to swim in cold water. If the wetsuit lets you get out and finish your swim without freezing, then great!
