Default When can I claim my first mile?

Is it a workout that totals a mile or is it one continuous mile swim? Inquiring minds want to know! :-)

If we talked in kilometers, it's much more obtainable :)

call i tfour gold stars then.

broken k
continuous k
broken mile
continuous mile

500 400 300 200 100 is a nice broken mile more or less. if you can do a 1500 you can do a 1650 (pool mile). 1500 is a nice number to work with.

If you're up to 500s yet, feel free to break that further
2 x 250, 2 x 200, 2 x 150, 2 x 100, 2 x 50. Keep breaking it if you like:

4 x 125, 4 x 100, 4 x 75, 4 x 50, 4 x 25 <--keep this set in your pocket in reverse order and from swim to swim choose one element to "chunk" as you gradually work your way to a continuous mile.

eg.
4 x 25 (100)
4 x 50 (200)
2 x 150 (300)
2 x 200 (400)
4 x 125 (500)

^^^ 1 mile in various broken combinations ^^

if that goes well, the following week ,try to make your longest swim a 250 instead of the 200 so one option: (the first two lines alway smake a decent warmup)

4 x25
4 x 50
2 x 150
2 x 200
2 x 250

Default Thanks!

I'm closing in on my first broken mile :-) I like the idea of multiple gold stars.

My longest single session so far is 1225 yards. I'll take a gold star for that one!
