How do you say "three times a week" in Latin?
For context, I want to say that I swim three times a week.

hebdomas, or hebdomada are late Latin for 'a week.'
'Each and every week' is Singulis hebdomadis.
Once, twice, three times, four times (in Latin) are
semel, bis, ter, quater. (like any other adverb, place it near to the verb)
After that it becomes more regular:
quotiens how many times; totiens so many times.
5x quinquiens; 6x sexiens; 7x septiens.
As mentioned in my answer to this question: Is there a difference between septimana and hebdomas? there is no word for "week" in Classical Latin. The other answers to your question refer to the usage of Christian authors only. So, in Classical Latin, the answer to the question would be, "it isn't possible".
