“I coach High School competitive swimming. I swim 2 miles per day in just a little over 1 hour. My first mile is non-stop and my second mile is a broken mile. The site below explains all sorts of conversions. I did the competitive swimming mile in 26:35 which is 1650 yards. http://swim.isport.com/swimming-guides/how-many-swimming-laps-are-in-one-mile”

Sarah L Swim a mile without stopping under 40 minutes. Challenge

Stattosilver Sarah L logged 1.60 km of Swimming in 0:39:55 on 31 August 2011
Yeah!!! Just, just made it. May have done it before but have been rubbish at looking at the time when I start. Empty lane and back stroke make all the difference :0)

Matt S Swim a mile without stopping under 40 minutes. Challenge

Contributorsilver Matt S did 46mins last night, first time in a while I've managed to go a mile without choking! Must get some new goggles though, lost mine and actually managed to change lanes yesterday without noticing! Want to get this done by end of the month...

nice one matt - what length is the pool? how are your tumble turns? :)

20110426120542-matts

It's 25metres (though in Kenya you can never be sure). I don't tumble or even push off at the end of lengths as surely that is cheating in such a short pool?! Next month school are opening the new pool, 25m olympic water polo certified, hopefully will have less frogs than the one I use now!

Matt S Swim a mile without stopping under 40 minutes. Challenge

Contributorsilver Matt S Well, I managed 1km post gym in 34 minutes, this is going to be a long term goal, but well worth the effort. Just gotta stop swallowing most of the pool

Steve R encouraged this.

nice work matt! - im gonna give this a go - tooting lido is calling...

20110426120542-matts

I can't believe how slow I am! Then again, I do pretty much drown during front crawl (I think to call my action "freestyle" would be an insult to swimmers!) The lido sounds a good place to do it, long lengths!
