Swim Workouts

Some of my favorite quick swim sets:

Quick Workouts: 1,500 to 2,000 yards/meters

Longer Workouts 2,000 to 3,000 yards/meters

Giiiirrrl, I got tired just reading that! 😉

I have trouble keeping count of my laps, so this is a trick I learned for swimming a 1km set.

250 free, 50 breast
200 free, 50 breast
150 free, 50 breast
100 free, 50 breast
50 free, 50 breast

I find it much easier to keep track of where I am this way. Slipping in the breaststroke every couple minutes also gives people a chance to pass.

I avoid fly, mostly because it is disruptive to the swimmer I no-doubt have to share a lane with. So a favorite lunchtime swim that I often do is 2000 yards consisting of four “weird 500s” like this:
11 free + 3 IM without the fly = 20 laps x 4 times = 2000 yards. I swim them one after the other without stopping.
So, 11 free + Free, breast, back, Free, breast, back, Free, breast, back (repeat 3 more times). Done.

Slightly confused… but isn’t Pyramid like starting from lowest and working your way to the top, and then descending again? Kind of like: 100,150,250, and then 300, 250, 200, 150, 100 like you posted.
