About the goal

No hitting the back of the net with this one as the goal is to swim 100m, the average length of a football pitch.

To kick it up a level try to do it quicker each time. Olympic swimmers can do it in less than a minute.

Remember, always warm up before exercising. Check out our stretching videos in the blog section.

In the pool

Aim to do 100m in one visit if you can. If not, set that as your target before moving on to the next challenge. Remember, every swim counts towards your goal, however small. Just log swims to reach it. So which one are you? You choose.

  1. End to end action. Swim it all in one visit with no breaks
  2. It’s a game of two halves. Swim it in two visits of 50m, or one visit with a break after 50m
