When I swim, I go by miles. But I can swim a mile (72 lengths in a 25 yard pool) in 46 minutes. So it sounds like you are doing REALLY WELL!! I'm not sure what the average is for everybody but I know that I get a minute or two faster every time I swim (when I started a little over a month ago, I could swim 72 lengths in 68 minutes). I usually swim 2 miles when I go because 1 mile is getting too easy and goes by too fast. Brag brag brag
Like I said, it sounds like you are doing really well!! My best friend (male) went swimming with me a few weekends ago and he could barely do 4 lengths
, so he got out and sunbathed (what a girl!). I think we are doing pretty darn good!! Keep it up!
