Also some hybrid USPRT sets of 50's fly, trying to build myself up to be able to race a 200 (SCY) in the mid 2:20's by Spring.
I'd love to hear about your experience using longer repeats with USRPT sessions. Most likely I'll try some long open water swims again (10+ miles) and I'm curious how to combine that with USRPT.
For now, I'm just happy to be back at it with 50s for a while. When I finish that set I'll start up with 75s again. Winter is a good time for me to train, as I can swim 5-6 days per week.
