Longer Sets to IMPRINT BETTER TECHNIQUE
I'm reacting only to the title--not the content--of this thread.
One of the most important of all TI training principles is that the only reason to lengthen a set--or to increase yardage as a general rule--is for the reason Gennadi Touretski gave when asked why he sometimes had Alexandre Popov swim more than 20km per day in training when he swam only 50m and 100m in races.
Touretski's reply: "More opportunities to practice correct technique."
That is perhaps my all-time favorite swimming quote.
