WARMUP:  400 on your own

6 X 25 swimming 2 or 3 abreast in your lane.  First 4 X 25 are moderate pace, and you should synchronize your strokes.  Final 2 X 25 are FAST pace, but still 3 abreast in your lane.

2 X 25 breath control on :40 (Coach's choice by round.  It could be freestyle with a max of 1 or 2 breaths/length...or breaststroke with a double underwater pullout...or butterfly not breathing until after the 3rd stroke...or backstroke kicking to mid-pool before breakout.)
1 X 50 pull on 1:00.  Breathe every 4 (or 5) on first 25; breathe as much as you want on secod 25.
