Sinéad M This is going to have to be a long-term goal for me... first I need to swim a mile... then I need to swim it all in one go... then I'll work on the 40 minutes bit!

“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”

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.
George B logged 2.5 km of Swimming in 1:00:00
Just part of my regular swimming so thought i'd tick it of the challenge list.
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.

Monica H Done! Nice inspiration to push me through training. Finished my mile @ 32 mins, which is super fast for me.
Sarah L logged 1.6 km of Swimming in 0:39:55
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)
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...
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!
