Julia Kathrin Baumgart, Espen Tønnessen, Morten Eklund, and Øyvind Sandbakk Able-bodied world-class swimmers have reported annual training volumes between 800 and 1200 hours, of which 600 to 900 hours are spent in the water with a swimming distance in the range of 1500 to 3600 km. 1 , 2 These are among the highest annual training hours reported for endurance athletes, which

The unique experience of swimming the English Channel is a test of mind and body to overcome multiple challenges. The purpose of this study was to examine psychological characteristics and reflective meanings of these swimmers. Eight English Channel swimmers were interviewed. Inductive and deductive analyses compared interviews and interpretations with the coinvestigator and swimmers. Themes included the cognitive orientations of mental toughness, while cognitive strategies included goal setting, Compartmentalization of time, and/or swimming distance, and self-regulation. Descriptions of the experience of the swim included an ease of swimming at the beginning, more aversive experiences in the middle, and a paradoxical euphoria and letdown upon completion of the swim. Several swimmers noted the perception of increased occupational effectiveness, self-confidence, and an awareness of unlimited potential. Whereas, other swimmers noted a more competitive post event focus. Reflective experiences supported Maslow’s notion that the meaning associated with a peak experience augments daily life.

Indeed, the predictive accuracy of the generalized linear mixed model, which included ΔPerf, rank at the major event, swimming stroke, swimming distance, and

External and Internal Training Load During weeks 1 to 7 of similar endurance and strength training, total swimming distance in the experimental group was 182.4 (16.8), 29.6 (5.5), and 12.4 (3.1) km at <75%, 75% to 85%, and >85% V max , respectively.

Although performance gaps narrow as swimming distance increases, the opposite effect (lowest gap at shortest distance) occurs in running. The magnitude of each biological “advantage” for men is, therefore, not necessarily constant along

The same procedure was performed to compare SR and RPE between each free swimming distance and every tethered swimming condition. The effect sizes ( d ) of the obtained
