@doc: a bit off-topic: what protocol sets do you do for distance swimmers (400m-800m-1500m) and on what weekly frequency? I recon an nx100 set for 800 pace is more taxing than an nx25 for 100 pace, so swimmers need more rest/can handle less weekly exposures to such sets?

As an example, would this be viable:

– 3x/w 50’s for 400 pace
– 3x/w 100’s for 800 pace
– 2-3x/w 200’s for 1500 pace

This seems really hard, haven’t tried it, but you may have more experience with this.
