What does the term "stroke" generally mean in a workout?

i.e. 5 X 100 Stroke

To me it means do a stroke of your choosing other than freestyle.

I agree. Anything other than freestyle (i.e., crawl).

Every coach uses terms differently - for our workouts :
Stroke means fly, back, breast or head up free for the triathletes. Choice means whatever you want
Specialty means what you are/will be swimming at meets or training for, usually your strongest event(s).

Hope this helps.
