Swam 400m in 20 mins. Did 2 sets of 3 lengths then sets of 2 with rests between. Already seeing an improvement. 4 weeks ago
How I did it: I recently read that swimming a mile is equivalent to running 5 miles. Since I could do one, I figured I should be able to complete them both. I saw that my son's camp was offering a mile swim training for any adult that wanted to try it.
Everyday a dozen of us gathered at 9 am on the dock of camp and swam several laps around their swimming area.
The first day, Monday, we swam 5 laps. I was surprised that everyone was lapping me. On my last lap one of the men jumped in and joined me on my last lap. I found out that I was
swimming with a bunch of teens and the only one that was much older than
me is an ultra-marathoner.
The second day I was expecting to do 10 laps, but we only had to swim 8 times around - about half a mile. Wednesday we swam 12 laps, and Thursday it was 16 laps. Just short of a mile. The other guys always stuck around and cheered me on for my last laps,
and one man even pulled me out of the water when I was exhausted.
On the race day we met at the docks again, but this time we had to bring two people with us to paddle a canoe. We were swimming around four buoys in the lake twice.
I found that the buoys were not evenly spaced and the distance from the second to the third was unbelievably long. At the third buoy I was lapped, he was very fast and I was very slow. (See the photo of him giving me a high five in the water). The second time around I was mentally ready for how far this buoy was away from the last one.
The two in the canoe followed me and spent most of their time trying to correct my course - I found I wasn't swimming straight at all. Read how I did it… 5 months ago
up to swim a mile at camp. I’ve never swam that far before. I just watched some youtube videos on how to have an efficient front crawl. That stroke always wears me out quickly. I figure if I can run 5 miles I should be able to swim a mile. 5 months ago
for a good few weeks what with school holidays and then I’m off to India BUT once i’m back it’s back to the pool and back to making this goal move over to my Done list. 8 months ago
and so far I have managed 22 lengths. My goal is to be able to swim a mile which in the pool I go to is 64 lengths.
I guess that mean’s I’m a third of the way there. 8 months ago
