See the nice article elsewhere by the Total Immersion founder, Coach Terry Laughlin. His tip is to do 50s or 100s and count the total number of strokes for the entire distance. Perhaps it is 77. Most of the time, I've always counted each length as its own result. But Terry's approach makes sense for getting one value for the entire distance, generally a 50-yard or 100-yard distance.
One version: Maintain the same stroke count while descending the swims' final time.
Other version: Maintain the same stroke tempo with the help of a Tempo Trainer or a Marlin (both are wearable devices) and descend the swims' final time.
