    Ande,

    How many days do you take off per week (or month) from swimming?

    How often do you swim at 100% effort (the speed you can only maintain for about 10-12 seconds) per week?

    Thanks,

    Steve

    I take off 1 or 2, I prefer to swim 6 days a week. Sometimes I swim 5, Some days I do doubles.
    last week I swam Mon - Fri & took off Sat & Sun. Almost went Sun to do a 3k with Jim & Dick

    Not sure, I need to do more and will do more as my meet in Dec approaches & I enter the strength & speed phase of my training. Today I did some pretty fast 25's but nothing all out. I prefer to do all out swims when I have at least 1, 2 or more minutes rest before the effort, usually for time and I'm concentrating on and get psyched to swim AFAP.
