again got some problems with my ankle that causes a pause at soccer and running for a few weeks.

i would like to keep my stamina up and swim a few days per week. i can swim but never did a serious training. does anybody have advice for beginners? maybe a table like this tables on the page for 5 or 10km running, just for a swimming distance, which is also achievable. i dont like just to swim there around, i need a goal!

no need to overcomplicate things dude. Just swim as many lengths of the pool as you can in an hour or whatever, then try and beat that number every session. Easy.

that's a good idea, dude! i could really work out such a table if it doesn't take too long to find out good volumes to get better at swimming til i'm back fit for running.

The need to have numbers and tables has nothing to do with your BA, that's just OCD. I have a BA, a BS and an MD, and I know that you're better off without numbers and tables. If you want to swim, just go swim. Swim hard, see how far you can go in however much time you want, then each time try to improve.

yeah, it was just a joke with the BA. but i like serious training plays which i can follow. but another option is to create the plans by yourself! but it looks like i will be back on the soccer ground sooner than expected. ankle recovery is going well. then i will finally be able to use all the hints i asked for in the last months! the last season was full of injuries.

Most of the couch to 5k and bridge to 10k programs are basically interval training programs like "Run 30 Seconds, Walk 45 Seconds, Run 45 Seconds, Walk 1 minute, Run 1 minute, walk 90 seconds and repeat "X" times" then gradually build to more run time than walk time with less repeats until you are eventually doing the distance in an allotted time frame, say 30 minutes for 5k or 60 minutes for 10k! You could use any of these templates with swimming like "30 seconds freestyle as fast as possible, 45 seconds relaxed back stroke etc"! Keeping time would be your major issue!
