Part Two

Swim a single 50 yards at maximum speed (any stroke)  Add five seconds to that time.

For example – if the maximum speed swim equals 35 seconds , then add 5 = 40 seconds.

Now add another 5 seconds = 45 seconds.

And now the fun part…..How many 40 second swims can you repeat on a 45 second time cycle? 

Key:

Less than 5: You’re as soft as a marshmallow.

6 – 10: Good but you can do better.

11 – 15: Very good.

16 – 19: Excellent

More than 20:  YOU, just completed, the Tier 1 Challenge.
