I have decided to try and retackle this challenge. The closest I have gotten is a 1:03 (in yards). The next meet that is within a close driving distance that I could afford is in January 2015 and than one in March 2015 where I hope to break 1 minute.

Right now I'm probably only in 1:10-11 shape as I haven't been swimming consistently due to work and a stint at lifting only.

January is still 30+ weeks away, which gives me plenty of time to train. I do train solo as well.

How would you go about prepping for a goal like this with a meet so far in the future?

If I were you, and swimming on my own, I would look at the Ultra Short Race Pace thread. I don't know how to embed a link, but it's pretty active in this forum.

Cool, thanks. I spent about an hour reading through that thread and looks like some quality stuff to incorporate. I know I need to add a lot more race pace training into my program to swim fast.
