For the past week I've decided to start trying to get back into swimming after feeling like an absolute potato lol. So far this week I've been twice, and I went once last week. I am also planning on going tomorrow. Here are my times and distances for only breaststroke, bearing in mind i haven't swum properly for 5 years.
-Last week Thursday: 1 hour | 64 lengths | 1.6km
-Thursday: 40 mins | 50 lengths | 1.2km
-Friday (today): 1 hour | 80 lengths | 2km

Do you think these are good times/distances? And what are your times and distances for breaststroke or any others?

Thats not bad. I generally don't count myself. I just keep on pushing, without swimming too hard, otherwise I'll lose all my energy. I usually don't swim for over an hour as it gets boring.

I do not think they're that great if I am being honest lengths don't mean much so I just compared the distance to the time.

don't push your body too much hard because swimming should be relaxing. And watching peoples who have good technique is a good time.

Well, its good that you seem to be getting better each time because your first one was just under one length per minute, then the second one was 5 lengths every four minutes than the last one was 4 lengsths every 3 minutes. Good job! Continue improving!
