I am a hobby swimmer. I train each day, swimming front crawl with the following regime:
- 500 meters using just my legs
- 500 meters using just my arms
- 500 meters using both legs and arms.
It takes me about 1h to complete this. I have noticed that I go significantly slower when I use just my legs. Is this normal, or is my technique/legs to blame?
Also, how does my training regimen compare to that of a professional swimmer? I suspect that 1500 meters/day is very little, but I am not sure...
