Separated shoulder 10 weeks from IMAZ

Went down Monday on a training ride, ended up with Grade III complete AC Separation. Ortho knows of IMAZ, says probably 4 weeks out of the pool, I can get on a trainer in a couple days, and can run when the bouncing doesn't hurt.
First IM is IMAZ. Have decided to give it the best shot I have and just aim for (1) getting to the start and then (2) getting to the finish.

Question is about swimming. I have a solid base and was realistically shooting for a 1:00-1:05 or thereabouts. There isn't any "equivalent" workouts to keep any swim fitness. I can finish 2.4 in 2:20 no problem, even with the time off, but when I get back in the pool, do you think I should just give up all the speed, shoot for base distance at an easy pace? Another approach?

I buy into the swim fitness for IM theory, so this is really just a kick in the ass, but I guess this is my challenge.
