When I go to the pool--not often lately--I write my workout on a post-it note or a small piece of paper and plaster it to the side of the pool wall. It doesn't have to be sticky; just dip it in the water and it'll stick right there.
I've found that breaking the swimming up into a bunch of different sets, etc. Really helps with the boredom and gives a sense of progress that turn after turn after turn after turn does not.
ive found a lot of people printing off workouts, dipping the paper in the pool, then putting the paper on a kickboard and leaning the kickboard up close but out of the way enough that it doesnt get continually splashed on the turns.
youre ahead of me on the planning stages though. i usually just make something up once im in the pool.
