M/W/F each week as the other days are too crowded, 2000 - 2500 each. I was swimming 5x/week but my shoulders started to revolt and my times/distances were not improving. The current 3x schedule swimming ladders seems to be highly effective.

I typically swim three times a week: Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.

In the Winter, on Monday and Wednesday I go between 2600 and 3200 (when I do stroke it's closer to 2600, when I do distance pace I do 3000 or more). The rest of the year, I go between 3300 and 3800, since I train with my team instead of by myself.

On Saturdays I train with my team all year, so it's usually 3300-3800 meters.

Since I can only really swim right now, I am at 3x per week and between 3000 - 4500 meters a practice.

I swim 2x per week with a masters group.  Distance is 3000 yards plus or minus a few hundred.  Ocassionally I'll do a weekend swim as well, of the same distance.

All this of course, after I shower Laughing

Usually 3-4x a week, usually 2-3k per session while in tri season.

2x per week, 1500-2500 per session when out of tri season.

M-W-F masters class over lunch.  I only have time for 1 hour swimming so I modify the workout down.  Generally between 2600-2800 depending on the focus of the workout.

Right now, 5 times per week about 2k yards per session. I havent been on my bike in like 2 weeks though. In season I might swim about 3 times per week.

I swim 5 X /week.  Three days with our USMS team and those vary from about 3500 (IM/sprint days) to 4500 (D- and mid D days).  The other two days I swim with a smaller group from the team and we go around 4500.

2x a week at least, 2000+ each day with my gym's swim team. Sometimes more, sometimes less. When I have a race, one more day of the approx same amount of meters.

One of my goals this year is to improve my swim, I had been in the pool 3 days increasing to 5 days a week between 3-4000 yds. a day. Ive been at it a bout 4 weeks and noticing I am able to hold good form much longer and faster times with less fatigue.

None right now Tongue out

But when doing specific race training, even in IM training, it's 2 days a week. 
For me personally, my training time is better spent on the bike or the run. 

I'm with Lisa here.  But I do have a plan that schedules 3xswims/week.  If an adjustment needs to be made, I'll drop the shorter swims to compensate before I drop a bike/run workout.
