Swim Training - Sprint Triathlon (750m swim)

In preparation for my Sprint Triathlon in August, I'm building up the distance I can swim without stopping.

I've done 400m non-stop before, but with the longer distance I figured I'd be better served at starting from shorter increments and gradually making them longer until I was doing 750m straight.

I didn't list my warm-up or cool-down, but I usually do 2x50m to warm up and 1x100m to cool off at the end. I've only listed my Key Workout, I'm usually in the pool 3 times a week. On the other days I bring in fins or hand pads and work on my technique - body position, kicking, arm stroke, and breathing.
