6 Week Training Plan

ZERO to 1650 in Six Weeks

Young or old, fit or not, six weeks seems to be the most common length of time it takes to be able to swim a mile without stopping for rest.

Don’t allow yourself to be put off by thinking that swimming a mile sounds very far.

If you are prepared to commit yourself to swimming three times a week, and following the plan  you will be amazed by what you can achieve in a short time.

Gaelscoil Na Mara kicks off 2017 Swim A Mile fund raising with €1,000

The 2017 Ian Daly Swim A  Mile event kicked off early on December 16th when 33 students from Gaelscoil Na Mara in Arklow completed the swim in the National Aquatic Centre in Dublin. Most of the students completed the swim in a relay as groups of two. There were also 9 brave students who completed the 64 length mile swim individually and were rewarded with a special ‘Ian Daly Swim A Mile’ swim cap.  As you can see from the pictures the swim went off very well and everyone had a great time. The school has raised over €1000 so far for our two charities, Crumlin Children’s Hospital and Barretstown.

Well done to all the swimmers and to the teachers who promoted the event in the school, led by Áine McKenna
