At practice you are supposed to be preparing and. In practices also there are more people in the pool at once so it makes it harder to swim against their waves compared to swimming against a few people in a race and one person in each lane. Also, at a swim meet you are not swimming as much as you do at practice, so you aren't as tired. Finally, you swim faster at practice because at a swim meet, you may be excited or extremely nervous to swim in front of many people. Your adrenaline kicks in and makes you swim faster.
