Got back in today after another 4-day hiatus. The legs felt really weak, especially on breast. My lungs were just not there either on the longer freestyle set, so I'm going to have to build back up slowly. Here's what I did:

400 EZ mixed stroke warm-up (200 free, 100 bk, 100 br)
8 x 50 on 1:00 in 4IMO (:47, :48, :51, :51, :56, :58, :45, :43 = 6:34... not great)
1:00 rest
4 x 50 on 1:00 in 2IMO (:47, :51, :58, :45? = 3:21... yuck!)
1:00 rest
4 x 150 freestyle on 3:00 (2:18, 2:18, 2:18, 2:16)*
1:00 rest
3 x 100 fr on 2:00 (asc 1:33-1:35)
100 EZ back

2000 SCY/45 minutes

*This freestyle set I was just trying to see if I could fall into a consistent pace per 50 and stroke count per length. I did manage to be pretty consistent at :45-:46 per 50... stroke count started at 14-15 and increased to 16-17 per length. This is probably my current 1650 pace, it didn't feel that strenuous, but it was not the :42-:43/50 pace that I want to be holding for the full 1650. :40+ rest was what I needed today, but it's probably far too much for 1650 training, so that will come down and the # of reps will go up over the next few weeks. Hope to be strong enough to hold that longer stroke and lower stroke count at speed going forward.
