I am looking for some new distance workouts. I like to swim between 3000-4000 yards a practice. I like working on distance swims doing ladders and such. Some of the workouts I have been doing are listed below, all freestyle. I guess I am just looking for something new. Anyone have any other suggestions??

Here's a set we did with the age groupers:

3x(350, 250, 150), descending times within each set and between sets.

We have about 10-15 workouts. Use the "Search Workouts" function for SCY, SCM, LCM and choose what you like:

Actually I'd call the above "middle distance", if you really want to be picky, but I guess it dependson your age and experience.
