Hey! I have had a brilliant plan!

After all this talk about swimming... does everyone want to swim with me? yes

This is my idea: Each time we swim, we record our yards/meters/time by adding it to the previous post, and so on and so forth.

(The reason for the time is that I still want credit on the days I feel too bad to actually swim, and end up treading water with the folks in the deep end)

When we get to 1,000,000 yd/m/hrs we win! 1cup

I'll start ~ My stats for today are...

1,000 yds

50 minutes

Add yours to mine and post the new total in your post!
Go TEAM! clap

Erica this is a cracking idea!
I swam 20 lengths in a friends pool... it's 12 metres long... I think... will check this... but that is 240 metres. It took me about 30 minutes.

New total:
80 minutes
or 1 hour 20 minutes
clap

Great idea, Erika, you are on!

Our pool is 28 feet long, I count back and forth as one lap, and I try to do 100 laps a day.

That's uh, umm, let me see...and we have to convert feet into yards, too? Or metres?

Uh oh, may have to get back to you on this.. doh

(floating on new pool lounge as I type this, clearly not an activity that is inducive to higher brain activity)

You're right Dow, it should be there and back is a length, oh man! That means it took me half and hour to swim 10 lengths!

Cool! cool

I don't think we need to convert.

Yards are close enough to meters, and minutes are the same everywhere, right?

Go team! cool

Like my exercise physiologist says... it doesn't matter how far you go, it just matters how much time you spend getting there!

When I first started swimming I could barely make it 25yd/m (depending upon the pool), where I would stop and gasp for air until I could swim back to the other end.

The trick is to do it as often as possible.

Go team! clap

I don't think I could swim that far, even now, with proper breathing!

Because our pool is just 28 feet on the long end, what I basically do is hold my breath the entire length, then come up for air as I turn around, then push off and hold my breath for the next lap, etc

So on the occasional times when we are in a hotel or somewhere with a full-sized pool, I have to try to and relearn the whole coordination thing of doing the crawl-stroke and exhaling underwater, coming up and inhaling during the next stroke, and find it quite difficult! yes

Or revert to a much slower side stroke, which is okay, it got me through all those swimming boy scout requirements as a kid doh

Checked and pool is 12 metres long and did another 10 lengths today =240 metres and took me 20 minutes (less stoppage and breather time today!!)

So new totals are:

TIME
100 minutes
or 1 hour 40 minutes


DISTANCE
1480 metres / yards
