I looked up some of the localish meets and it seems there was only a handful of masters swimmers present. Maybe one day I'll give that a go although if it's just all kids racing seems a bit weird. I do push a lot harder in a club environment than I would on my own, we get very little rest between sets. It's interesting that sometimes a scrappy energy burning thrash up the pool is barely any faster than my nice long patient stroke however I don't care what anyone says, if you are going to use a long patient stroke and be fast doing it you'd better be strong as it's quite a workout (albeit you get a lot of recovery in the stroke cycle). It's all good though, learn something from here, something from there and make it your own. I think it increases your threshold too so the effort you can sustain for longer is increased in practices like that.
