Ha yeah I believe the 50 meter is 3 times longer than the 25 :)
Congratulations on your swim

If you have a 6 m push-off then the remaining length in a 25 m pool is 19 m while it is 44 m in the 50 m pool.
44 / 19 = 2.3

So in fact in the 50 m pool you have to swim a longer distance... exactly those 6 m that you would cover in the 2nd push-off in the 25 m pool :-((

Default 50 Metres Plus . . .

Haschu, That might possibly go just a little way to explaining my disappointing time which I predicted based on a 25 metres pool so thank you for that!

Does anyone have a rule of thumb measure for the expected extra time likely for 1500 metres or a mile in a 50 metres pool as against a 25 metres pool? Is there one?

Hi Martin

There are a few conversion utilities on line and this is one of them:

Easy to use and will give you an approximate conversion.
