Default High Intensity Interval Training

.... or HIIT

I was going to start alternating my interval work on the recumbent bike with my normal 1 mile swim. Instead, I decided today to try to incorporate the HIIT into my swimming. I did one length full speed, flipped over on my back and just kicked on the return. Did this for eight or nine repetitions. What do you think about this approach?

I always am concerned about exercise in the pool vs in the "real world," i.e., working against gravity on land, but I think I may do this on regular basis and throw in some weight lifting here and there at home.
