(In an Olympic sized pool with 25 meter lanes, complete 33 lengths. In a 25 yard pool, complete 36 lengths. In pond, lake, or ocean, please find a reliable way to verify the distance. Most important: Please be safe. Stay close to shore, and make sure you are not alone, and can get help if necessary.)

Completed at the Lasker pool in Central Park. Two extra laps just to make sure. I haven't swum this far since I did it for a certificate when I was about 14.

I think it's all about the style, sure you do have a very good style in swimming which makes it easy for you.

I have been trying to have a good style, till I read this book about the
freestyle technique, since then my style & my speed have been improved in a noticeable way.

I swim 60 lengths in a 25 yard pool twice a week.  Have been doing it since Sept 2009

I love swimming, but I don't think I can make a half mile swim. I easily get tired.I admire those people who can swim a mile. Wish I could do the same. nkelly above ground pool steps
