Therefore, I am wondering about how much long course AG triathletes that spend a serious amount on time swim per week, how long a typical mainset is and how frequent you swim. Ideally from triathletes without a swimming back ground to not distort with "high school fishes" that can stay fast with a couple of 2-3km sessions per week.

In other words:

-- what is your weekly volume in terms of TIME spend in the pool?

-- how many days per week do you swim?

-- do you have short days, recovery days and long days or do you always spend more or less the same time in the pool?

I looked at the october swim tread but there is a lot of variance. This is what I plan to do:

-- swim ~10 hours per week (vs ~5-6 currently)

-- swim 5-7 days depending on how I feel and what my agenda allows

-- have a least 4 sessions of 2 hours (which for me probably translate into 5000 meters for those sessions) and the remaining 1-3 sessions 1-3 kms depending on how I feel and time available.

This would translate roughly into 22-24 km per week vs 10-14 currently.
