Any tips for training for a 200 IM (and 100 IM) While also training for a 200 and 500 Free? Swim practice is normally an hour so trying to fit everything in is a challenge

Who do you swim with in Charlotte? Aquageek on the forum is a masters coach in Charlotte. If you don't swim with the SwimMac masters, you might consider joining them. They do a variety of practices than train for all events throughout the week.

If you want to swim on your own, you won't be able to train for all four events in a single practice effectively. You will need to plan out what you want to achieve each week. I would recommended looking up PWB's Animal Lane practices, if you swim on your own. Patrick does a great job of mixing IM work and middle distance work for people swimming on their own.
