Slightly random question but has anyone tried to take up diving since taking up cycling and struggled with air consumption? We’ve just got back from holiday and for the third time I’ve tried a taster dive with the idea of doing my full PADI cert and run out of air very quickly (faster than dive instructor had seen before). They thought I was panic breathing I didn’t think I was I was pretty chilled and breathing like when snorkelling but at this stage I don’t think I’ll try again.
Is this something others have experienced? is it related to spending the other 50 week of year doing a sport that’s improved by bringing in as much air as possible.
