"Stamina comes with practice. If you have a difficult time continuously swimming long distances, break your workout down and do a pyramid or ladder set.

Pyramid sets you gradually increase the distance of each set and finish with your longest distanced set. For example, 5 sets: 100, 200, 300, 400 and 500.

Ladder sets you increase your distance, then decrease and finish with a short distance. For example, 5 sets of 200, 300, 400, 300 and 200.

Increase your distances or the number of sets as you get used accustomed to the sets. Set a goal of how many yards you will like to accomplish in your workout. If you workout for an hour, try to complete 3000 yards, then increase to 3200 and so on.

The best way to gain stamina during swimming it to do a lot of long distance swimming about 3-4 times a week roughly about 4kms. then about 3 times a week work on your speed and recovery so do sprints of about 50m at a time with short rest periods you should find a quick change after about 2 weeks..."
