There are a couple of things that would concern me. Training Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday leaves them 4 days straight without major race pace sets. That’s a big break. Will you eventually be able to do some every day? Or at least spread it out to Monday, Wednesday, Friday?
I haven’t had much success training for 200s with 25s. My swimmers can go forever with 25s at 200 pace and it doesn’t translate to their races. I think 50s are the way to go for primary 200 training. At least for freestyle. I haven’t trained anyone for 200s of stroke. I will say that switching our 200 IM training to only 50s for back, breast, and free has seemed to work better so far.
