I like to do a 2,000 meter warm-up followed by a threshold set of 20 x 100s on a 130s cycle for 1,600 meters. Transcript: "Favorite swim workout. I'm a bit of a boring swim workout guy. You know, I get I get the program from my coach and I see it and I kind of look at the main set. And yeah, I almost changed it a little bit and just do like 2,000 meters, warm up straight into the main set and then a cool down because I just, I just want to get it done. Usually, you know, I like to be in and out in an hour or so, but I guess in terms of an actual specific workout. I kind of like threshold 100. It's so maybe something like 20 times 100 going for threshold one easy on a 130 cycle. So you kind of simulating, you know, it's 1,600 meters of that high high threshold stuff. That's really good for racing."
My favorite swim workout is the Rebecca Adlington set - 4 rounds of 50, 100, 150, 200, 250 (off a one-minute base) with a 300m easy swim in between each round. It's brutal, but it's also really satisfying.
My favorite swim workout is the Friday workout of the Noosa Squad, consisting of a warm up and a set of one easy, one hard, one easy to hard. I aim to get my average time down and finish with a loosen-down.
My favorite swim workout is a set of 40 times 100, alternating between 20 times 50 and 10 times 100 with one fast and one easy. After that, I repeat the same set twice.
I don't do swim workouts, but enjoy being in the sea for fun on holidays.

I remember a really great swim session in the London Aquatics Centre during the 2012 Olympics, where me and my friend Louis did a 350m build with an emphasis on the finish. We ended up going 20:50, 24:32, 40:00 Long Course which was a PB for me. We also did 15-20 hours of hard grinds with fast times like 15:25, 24:35, 23:50, and 30:01 all out to get a good time on the last one.
