Swim the distance of the Channel from the comfort of your local swimming pool! The Channel swim is a gruelling 22miles. Depending on your local pool, that will break down to the following number of lengths:
20m pool: 1770 lengths
25m pool: 1416 lengths
33m pool: 1073 lengths
50m pool: 708 lengths
This challenge is definitely tough, but completing it will feel amazing! Check out the length of your local pool, and break down your swims into an achievable schedule across a 12 week period.
Good Luck!
