Oh how I love Chlorine

Today was my first pool swim in a while, and boy was it nice.  Call me warped, but I love the taste of chlorine.  It sure tastes better than the Great Salt Lake, or Bountiful Lake.  Although I never intentionally swallow any water I swim in, that is truly nasty.  This morning looked way too cloudy and stormy to comfortably swim at BL, so I stopped at Layton Surf N' Swim for this workout:

1800 yards straight nice and easy (27 minutes)
800 - 4 x (100 fly kick with fins, 100 free kick with fins) nonstop.
800 - 4 x (100 fly kick with fins on back, 100 back kick with fins) nonstop.  On this set focus on long exhales with head looking back upside down underwater.
1000 - 5 x 200's free pull on 3:00 descend 1-5 (2:45, 2:40, 2:35, 2:33, 2:30)
1000 - 5 x 200's free no equipment on 3:00
100 back easy
500 - 5 x 100's free on 1:30 desc 1-5 (1:25, 1:20, 1:18, 1:15, 1:12)
100 breast/back cool down

6100 yards total -- felt great!

During last Saturday's eventful swim, I thought of something that would get me in the record books.

But I'll keep that a secret so nobody beats me to it.  But it will be awesome!
