Comments
When swimming without equipment, target pace is 1650 goal time of :35/50 or better. Main emphasis is about 5000 yards of approximate race pace effort for OW 5K swim. Sometimes I will do some straight FR swims of 40 to 90 min and for the structured sets I keep the repeats mostly between 25 to 150 yards. 200s will be included more often when/if I am able to hold 200s at/or under 1650 pace with :40 to :50 rest.

To keep maintaining some speed and feel for the strokes I do workouts like this one two times weekly on alternate days, or a weekend session.

Comments:
More often this workout is harder and takes more recovery than the 5K set.
