I was swimming more than a mile before I hurt my back. When the doctor let me resume swimming, I was only doing 1000 meters. Now I am scheduled for heart surgery (procedure) 12/20, but after that, I'm supposed to be a new person. So, I will let you know.

Here's the program. I'm going to post the challenge on the Main Boards under Challenges.

I can't wait to see if I can actually swim a mile freestyle at all, let alone without stopping!

Hope to have you join me! www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/messageb

Sounds like fun to me. :) A swimmer's mile is 1650 yards, right? That's not too bad o do during a session, but it'd be cool to do it without stopping. Can you post the details?

Has anyone here done the "Swimmers Mile" program? I found it on the swimming app (Swim 222), and it seems to be a swimmer's version of the Couch to 5K plan for runners. It takes 6 weeks to complete, swimming 3 days a week. The aim is that by the end of the 6 weeks you have increased your stamina so that you can swim a mile continuously.

I can swim a mile breast stroke, but my stamina when I swim freestyle is hideous! So my aim, by the end of the 6 weeks (or maybe a bit longer, depending on pool access) is for that to be significantly improved.

Anyone else interested? I'll post the details here if you are. And I would love for some company on this challenge!!!
