An equally relevant question is:
--what is your time for 25 meters?
Is the problem that you can't move fast enough in the water to attain the times you want to attain, or is it that you can move that fast but can't maintain that speed for the distances you need to swim in a triathlon?
Also, if you swim continuous laps in a pool, how far do you have to go before you start to feel out of breath?
