I want to start a new swimming challenge. How about The English Channel (21 miles) or the Manhattan island swim (28.5 miles) or for the super adventurous Cuba to Key West (103 Miles)? If you are looking for something easier to start with, how about swimming from the Upper Peninsula to the Lower Peninsula of Michigan along the path of the Mackinac Bridge (5 miles)?
Here is how it works:
25 yards = 22.8 meters
1 mile = 1760 yards
1 mile = 1600 meters
A mile in the pool is 1,760 yards so The English Channel swim is 36,960 yards (21 miles * 1,760 yards).
Reply to this message that you would like to do a virtual swim. Each time you go for a swim you can come back and edit your response over and over to keep your track of your mileage.
