Still swimming two days a week but not blogging. I have been working on "pool open water" sets the past 6 weeks. Today we did (without lane lines):

200 swim/100 kick/200 pull [did extra 200 swim, 200 pull, 100 im]
4 x 50 quarter's strong

"300's served 5 ways" ...
-300 on 6:00 [done as 4 laps counterclockwise around full 6 lane 25yd pool - no walls]
....I did an extra lap
- 6 x 50 on 1:00 [wherein all 5 of us swam between lanes 2+4, rotating position in lane]
- 2 x 150 [done as 2 laps clockwise around the full pool - no walls]
- 3 x 100 on 2:00 [between lanes 2+4, I did 150's with Matt]
- 4 x 75 k-s-p on 1:30

- 200 loosen plus and extra 100
[Masters/Rec/3200 yds/68 min]

While my current Open Water schedule is zilch, I have been incorporating this type of training/awareness since we do have triathletes in our group. At all times passing, touching of legs, and generally getting used to swimming with someone practically on top of you is encouraged. Everyone really feels the lack of benefit from a flipturn every 25 years when we do the full pool swims with accompanying chop. We have also worked on sighting techniques, turning through corners (with imagined buoys), and talking about starting and finishing races (like...should I start in the middle or outside of the main group, or let them go ahead for like 10 seconds so I don't get clobbered in the first 100 yds of the race). With some changes in the management of the Rec Center I am able to sneak in a few minutes early and have bumped my swims up to 32-3600 yds (from 24-2600), which has been good for me.
