Athlete Approved: Style Sticks Teach Three Style Freestyle
Celebrating Six Years of Workout Posts By Getting Slower and Slower

Rearview Mirror 2012 In Laps

It wasn't a good swim year for me.  But at least I'm swimming.  I used the FLOG (Fitness Log) on the website to track my yards swimming all year.  A little about that it seems some folks really really swim a lot:

USMS Go The Distance Mileage Milestone Achievements:

    50 miles (2588 swimmers)

    150 miles (1755 swimmers)
    200 miles (1451 swimmers)
    250 miles (1194 swimmers)

That's crazy!  3,456 Swimmers participated which is a pretty big turn out of swimmers.  My mileage wasn't that great with 202.61 miles.  At least I broke 200!  I'm going to continue to keep it up for 2013 to see if I can make it to 250 miles!
