Are mY Swim Times Good?
Hi,
i am a 12 year old girl, im very tall and strong for my age, i'm 5'6 and i have size 11 feetDodgy. i started competitive swimming a year ago and have really given it my all . These are my times:
50 Free Long Course: 32.09 AA Short Course: 30.24 BB
short course times:
100 free: 1:07.73 BB
200 free: 2:28 BB
500 Free: 6:40 BB
1650 Free: 22:39 BB
50 Back: 36. 40 BB
100 Back: 1:19:19 BB
100 fly: 1:15.59 BB
I know they really don't stand out for a girl my age when i have people the same age that are going 10 seconds faster in the 100 free, but i was wondering,considering im fairly new and stuff, are these good times?

If you are new to this, they are fairly decent times. There is nothing all that amazing in there, but I believe that if you work on it you can expect some very good results!

RE: Are mY Swim Times Good?
Those are very good times for someone only doing competitive swimming for a year. Don't worry about competing with those girls who've been doing it for 5 years now. Focus on nailing down your technique, and you will surely be up there with them come HS. There are plenty of examples of college and Olympic swimmers who, while they may have started non-competitive summer leagues and what not, didn't start swimming seriously until they were much older than you.

Not saying you'll be an Olympic swimmer, but those size 11 feet sure will help!

Best of luck to you!
