Stay on the clock and don’t take any breaks in this set.  The rest you need is built in.  The sets of 4 swims are geared to keep you in pretty constant motion at reasonably intense level.  The longer swims are designed to stretch out, and find a rhythm—steady pace, stroke count and breathing pattern.  The larger interval is in case you want to swap gear in or out during the set.

Odds:  50 drill/25 swim

Evens:  50 kick/25 swim

3×50 swim on cruise+10 sec, ascend 1-3
