Coach Tucker,
You are correct in that the “self-regulating” or “auto-regulation” is CRITICAL! If you don’t let them stop when they can no longer hold pace and have them swim out the set you might as well go back to the traditional approach.

Here is data over the past 24 years. It dropped the 200 fly and 200IM data ?? In 1990-2000, we were a very traditional program i.e. 11 workouts, kicked, pulled, you name it we did it.

You can see that after 2000, we have had a much better % improvement rate that was due to a gamble we took and dropped AMs, dropped weights, dryland and stretching. The only goal was to swim fast at each practice.

The numbers are percent improvements for just the short course seasons. I have LCM data but thought it a bit much to look at.
