Results:
TIME   Stroke Rate    BPM
35.3           37                 161
35.1           39                 161
34.7           46                 165
34.5           40                 166
34.6           44                 166 
34.2           44                 166
34.2           39                 167
33.7           47                 166

Notes: Did a solid 25 minute warm-up prior to this workout.  Did a 1k at a easy pace to work on the stroke.  Then I did 4 or 5 200m intervals starting with a stroke rate of 20, then went up a few strokes each interval.  I focused a lot on stroke rate throughout my intervals and tried to determine if it effects my times and my heart rate.  When I get into higher stroke rates, it seems that my heart rate goes up, but it doesn't necessarily mean that the times get better.  It seems with a solid warm-up and a correct effort, the lactate intervals aren't the worst thing in the world.
