Hi! How could involve my swimming exercises to Training Load plugin if I know my exercises TSS score? Is there any way without HR?
Thanks.

my suggestion would be to borrow a friend's watch Polar/suunto or use a caching hr pod and work it out for one session (or do different kinds of training in one session). work out the score per length and manually add it

then just enter it manually in the future based on the number of lengths.

I do 3 trimps per 100m. thoughwith an endurance session in wetsuit it would be a fair bit lower for me

this sounds a 'bit rubbish' but it'll probably be vaguely accurate.

On Summary page, add the line TRIMP=xxx
where xxx is your estimate of the TRIMP value for the activity,
