One Hour Postal Swim!

Hey swimmers, it’s time for another Postal Swim! Seattle Athletic Club Downtown is hosting their annual One Hour Postal Swim (OHP) on January 29th.

  1. *Swim as far as you can in one hour
  2. *No need to count laps (someone else does that for you)
  3. *Submit your laps and splits to USMS (United States Masters Swimming)

Training tips:

  • *Gradually increase overall yardage in a session. Approx 10-20% based on the amount you have been swimming.
  • *Gradually increase overall yardage in a week. Approx 5-10%
  • *Get in 1-3 sessions totaling your estimated yardage you have set out to reach in the hour.
  • *Frequency is more important over total volume in a session so swim often. 4×15-30 minute sessions are better than 1 session at 1 or 2 hours.
  • *Join in on a swim conditioning class at Seattle Athletic Club to mix up your routine and to meet fellow OHP swimmers.
