Movie Ranking: four / five
I’m a good distance swimmer but I SUCK at short distance. My 50 fr is a 24.48 but my 1650 yd. fr is a 16:41.29.
im a competitive swimmer and it didst help at all soz
you just gotta conserve your energy like tom said. you gotta swim soft and slowly when you start. I know it’s natural to start off fast but people underestimate the distance and want to sprint in the beginning unless you practice it a lot and know your limits
I started off very fast and was in the lead but after 200m i barely managed to finish the race and came last….
finally swam 3600 meters and i thought my chest was about to explode.
I just swam 400 free and i almost died XD
Thx i just swam the 200 free in my swimming league im 11 so its distance and this vid helpe.d
i live where there are tons of lakes, i don’t feel safe swimming there, well going deep anyways, so i only have 10 meters length to work with which kinda sucks. there aren’t any pools in my region for that reason. that really sucks for me, i wanna start swimming like this it looks like so much fun.
I did 100 lengths today at my local swimming pool in 1hour 35mins which is like a length a minute. one length is 25m so I did 2500m which is equivalent to like 1.6 miles if you round it up on a calculator, so pretty cool seeing as I only started going about a week ago. Now I just gotta resist fatty foods, Im not fat at all but kind of defeats the purpose if I have fish and chips tonight haha.
Well, I do if I do say so myself:D I don’t swim with anything, unless you count fins, bouy, kickboard, and paddles:D

yds. if it was meters id be a state champ lol
Thanks! This will come in handy for next year haha
Thats freaking fast for a 100! Well done! Is that 50m/100m or yards btw? Either way still fast.
I don’t swim that short, but I got a good tip from someone that does: Swim 100m dashes such that when you stop, you need 10-15 seconds of panting before you can talk without stopping midway through a sentence. Learn to repeat that amount of effort by repeating the 100m sprints enough times. Then when hitting 200m for real, do 100m like you’ve training and go for broke the last 100, max effort and if you feel dead 15m before hitting the wall, then perfect
You can do with just 2, I do during anything but the longest distance passes and warmdowns. Just alternate the side you breathe at every 50m. If you can stand it breathwise, try with 3, that way it doesn’t matter to alternate sides when swimming laps and it transfers well to openwater swims. Imho, more than 3 strokes before breath is stupid unless its specifically to train oxygen starvation.
I couldn’t agree more with ya. It really gives you discipline and structure in your life. Sacrifice for sure as well, food becomes fuel and one feels like the entire world smells like chlorine. But I bet you still look stunning, cause it really shapes your body as well. PS: Do you swim with H2O audio, Poolmate watch, etc in training or just plain?
how many strokes do you take before you breathe? this is th eonly thing im stuggliong with, idk what is most ideal
so for mid distances saaaaay the two hundred… so you’re going to swim a hundred half intense then the last hundred you swim full steam?? I dont really understand since ive only been swimming for two years (this is going to be my second) so any advice would be great
thanks im going to try to make cif on the 500
practice your technique long strides and powerful flipturns are wut will help your speed the most
wish i was at that school, we do 1200s for warmups lol
it sucks lol just play a song in your head, takes your mind off how tired u are
just pace yourself, take a deep breath 4 strokes before the flip turn and wut helps me is i sing a song in my head, helps take the pressure off so ur more calm with your breathing, hope this helped a little
just practice,practice,practice, swim a few laps a day before joining a team so you get back in the rythem, but its hard just dont quit and hopefully ur coach wil help you along, mine did and now i swim a 24.6 50m
