Default Cross training

Is anyone else out there doing any cross training? Given the nature of triathlon I've been doing a big block of road cycling the last month and hadn't swum for couple of weeks.

Hit the pool yesterday with club and found despite minimal rest I coped better with what others said was a tough session and also where flip turns used to make me feel oxygen deprived it didn't cause me anywhere near as much discomfort. Seems I've made some good aerobic gains.

I keep saying I'll concentrate on just one sport sometime but they are so complimentary I'm scared to lose the cross training benefits.

Anyone cross training specifically to improve their swimming? I've noticed the current era of sprint swimmers spend more time in the gym than they do the pool.
