I'm logging meters for each swim here to keep myself accountable to my progress. My goal is to reach the 7260m of Chesapeake Bay in 6 weeks.

Swim#1 Aug15: 950/7260 - need to pick up the pace next time! (13% done)
Swim#2 Aug17: 1050/7260 - kept a better pace and added four laps to my time! (now 28% done). Going to keep up the pace!
Swim#3 Aug25: 1150/7260 - squeezed a few extra laps in! (44% done!)
Swim#4 Aug31: 1000/7260 - swam for less time and picked up the pace! (57% done!)
Swim#5 Sept5: 1200/7260 - got a great swim in the other day! (74% done!! and still have more than 2 weeks to go!)
Swim#6 Sept14: 1300/7260 - got a great swim in after a nice week vacation (92% done! Getting very close!)

Hi all! I'm a regular weekly swimmer, but looking for fun ways to motivate myself. I'll log meters for each swim here to keep myself accountable to my progress. My goal is to reach the 7260m of Chesapeake Bay in 6 weeks.

A mile today, in 40 minutes. Considering the first time I swam a mile about a month ago it took me 71 minutes, I'm doing pretty well. I've completed this challenge, Woohoo! 7750/7260 so I have 500 yards towards my next swim.

LIVE WELL, LOVE MUCH, LAUGH OFTEN

I live a couple miles from the bay and I have always wanted to participate in the annual Chesapeake Bay Swim. It is a 4.4 mile swim from Sandy Point State Park to Kent Island. Now that I'm back in the pool, I thought I'd give it a shot, at least virtually. It's a beautiful body of water, so here goes. 950 yards down, 6310 yards to go! Anybody in?
