When switching between before and after (/) it can take a long time and the dreaded spinning beach ball is evident. This is on a 24 inch M1 iMac with 16 gig ram and a 1 tb ssd. The images are on an external ssd, a Samsung T5, but the delay is not evident on all images.

Here is a guess! Possibly there was some slight corruption in your Catalog file that made it difficult for LrC to display the 'Before' editing steps. The re-import would also have refreshed the Previews cache.
