Good job!

I had a good week as well (for me!) with 3 swims totaling 8000 yards. 

I'm happy with the distance, but now if I could just speed up some.  *sigh* Patience isn't my strength

Thats how it is done !

I think getting those 3 swims in every week is a most if we want to make it, hopefully we will get faster at some point over the next months

Im falling behind - been caught up in the winter blues. Averaging closer to twice a week than 3X...also been working on some drills vs distance which isnt helping. Thats why this challenge is good - will force me to try and catch up/keep up.

Well I finally got back to Clemson for school and was going to start swimming but then apparently a pipe burst over the break and the pool's closed until the end of the month

Just wrapped up my last swim for the week

So far for me:
Last week:  4500 yds
This week: 8350 yds

Total yds in the challenge:  30950, using 1650 per mile, that's 18.75 miles. 

I'm one swim away from my biggest swim month ever.  Don't know if that's good or sad - ha!

I did my 3 swims last week and ended up with 10200m witch put me just over 25% done

Still it is a long way to go but I have figured out that if I plan in 3 swims a week I will make it. Actually with 3 swims a week I will go a bit over target so right now can "miss" 4 swims and still make it Now all I need to do is NOT to get sick.

 

happy swimming

0 swims this week....had the flu

Can't WAIT to get back on my training plan.  I'm going crazy 'resting'.  Still hopeful I can make 100 miles in time, just gotta step it up a little.

Good week last week - 8150 yards.

Total in challenge - 24.6 miles  (based on 1650 yds/mile.  That's what I'm sticking to)

Including this week, looks like we've got 11 weeks left to go

Good job

By the end of the week I should be half way there

I also got talked into doing a masters swim competition, will do the 800m free and probably a relay. This will give me 1 extra swim this week so I am now up to 5 swim I can miss for the rest of the challenge and still make it (based on 3 swims a week)

Keep swimming....

Great job! 

Had a time constrained week last week, so only 7200, but I'll take that.

So far this year, I've already swum 2/3rds of the total volume I did last year - yay!

Looks like it might be just us left in the challenge....hmmm.

Doing 7200 with a time constrained week is very good

I think this will end up being my biggest swim month ever And if I keep my swim plan Marts should be even bigger

I think your are right, it dose look like it is just the 2 of us left.......Well it is a very hard challenge, manly because it is so long. But it was something I needed as I am finally starting to improve my swimming, well it fells better/easier, speed is hopefully coming too

hmm wish i'd seen this challenge earlier.  
If you decide to do it again or extend the deadline let me know.   I'm averaging around 10,500 / week right now and doubt I can ramp up much more than that with finals & spring break coming up.  Would need to hit ~17,900/week to make the challenge.  That's about 4000 yards 5 days a week without fail.  Possible, yes.  Likely, no.  Especially since pool parties and lightening storms have kept me out of the water the first two days of this current week.

Welcome!

You can still jump in & just adjust your goal down.   Maybe like 50 miles or 75 by end of April?

Mesteren - awesome job on biggest swim month ever!

This is very belated, but CONGRATS!!!!  Good job!!  Smile

I'm probably not going to make, but I don't really have control of that.  (Started working with a coach about 2 months ago so I just follow what she says.

However, I've already swum WAY more this year than I did in all of 2009 or 2010, so I'm very pleased

There is NO WAY I can get in 100 miles by April but I would still love to join and keep track of my progress. I will track my workouts and I am thinking I will shoot for 60 miles as well. Not even sure I"ll hit that but I will try! I am only swimming 2 days per week and then a very short swim one additional day (20 laps or so due to time constraints). I am headed into a busy tri season with an Olympic, 1-2 HIM races, and a full IM in November so I need this! Thanks for the challenge!

Would have started a new one instead of a 3 yr old one, but definitely sounds like a good idea!

Maybe we should start a new one?? If someone does, we can all change over to that 2014. I just realized this wasn't new but was
recent because someone commented in December! Funny!
