Tony W I have just registered for this challenge. I normally only swim in open water and would like to get my time down to under 40 minutes a mile so looking forward to this challenge.
Swim a mile without stopping under 40 minutes. Challenge rules
- Not all types of physical activity are suitable for everyone. Users take Challenges and training advice at their own personal risk.
“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”

Craig C My usual swim is 1500 - 2000m but I have never timed myself. Tomorrow will be a new challenge. I think I will do it at my usual pace first to see just how fast I usually am then I'll make "run" at the challenge time.
Brian L Started swimming a week ago on 3x a week cycle, with running 30 miles a week and getting on my bike when the weather permits. Want to swim a mile to do Half Iron man this summer.
Malcolm D Elation after finishing this this morning meant my cool down laps were faster than my mile laps...
Sorin P encouraged this.
Monica H Done! Nice inspiration to push me through training. Finished my mile @ 32 mins, which is super fast for me.
Sarah L I've so far managed to get my time down from 64minutes to 55minutes. I may get there by the end of the holidays!
Paul S encouraged this.
Stuart K encouraged this.
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...
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.
Why not ask for some advice from other Challenge takers, or read some of the Challenge guides first?OK, I'll keep working at it!
