Hi -- I'm new to the forum. I swim on average three or four times a week -- about 2K per session, which takes me about 45 minutes.

So, on average over that distance, my speed is about 1 minute, 7 seconds per 50 meters. When I sprint, I can do 50 meters in 35 seconds

I'm 42, male, 6 feet tall and about 195 pounds.

Is this fast, slow, average?

Thanks.

Welcome to the forum!

“fast, slow, average” relative to what? Relative to the general population of 42 year old males it would be considered fast. However if you look at the reported current top times
http://www.usms.org/comp/toptimes.php a 35 second 50 places you around 100th out of 120.

Keep on swimming!
