I think most of us here are AG'ers.  What were your longest week swim totals while training for your Ironman?

I'm training now for my first IM, which is next fall.  My schedule calls for the longest week total of 6.5 hours.  The average being just 3.

An average week for me will be between 2.5 and 3 hours. I do not think that I've ever gone over 4 hours.

Most of the time my swims were 1 - 1.5 hours a day 2 to 3 times a week. I had 2 weeks of 4.5 hour swims (8500 and 12800 yards)

At my peak I was doing an IM distance and 2 1/2 IM distance swims per week in the 2 months leading up to IMLP. For me that's less than 3 hours. I was cool with that, I had no problems.

AT my peak I was doing between 10,000-12,000 yards a week and it will take me about 5-6 hours...

Ummm..yea...I didn't really train for that event. In the spring I swam several times a week, maybe an hour at a time, but I basically stopped in late summer. LOL...I can't believe I did that and felt great in the race.

I don't remember any of my swims being more than about an hour. I think a few went 1:15. The distance varied depending on what workout I was doing (straight swim, endurance sets, etc.).

Last year I did about 1.5 to 2 hours a week tops swimming. Finished IMC swim in 1:05. That included me swimmer blocker for my wife and friend to the first bouy. Plenty fast for me, I'm planning on doing a bit more training this coming year and trying to break 1:00 on the swim this year.
