Long Black Friday swim

Since we didn't go to the cabin for Thanksgiving, and stayed home I was blessed with the opportunity to do a long swim.  I got up at 5:30am.  Cathi drove me to SDRC (where she continued on to Sandy to run with an old friend) and I was in the water at 6:30am.  Here was the workout I wrote on a piece of paper on the way:

1000 warmup
1000 - 1 x 1000 strong (14:15)
1800 - 2 x 900's (800 free immediately followed by 100 back)
2400 - 3 x 800's pull
2800 - 4 x 700's
Take a quick bathroom break and take a buzz bite for energy.
3000 - 5 x 600's
3000 - 6 x 500's kick odd w/fins, even w/o
2800 - 7 x 400's IM (fly one arm only)
Cathi showed right at the end of this set.  She was done running with her friend and also going to breakfast with her sisters in Bountiful.  She brought a book and was really supportive as she said she was willing to wait and read her book while I finished out the remaining sets.
2400 - 8 x 300's pull strong
Take a buzz bite
1800 - 9 x 200's free on 3:00
1000 - 10 x 100's odd IM, even free on 1:45
100 - 2 over unders

23,100 yards (13.125 miles) in 6:25

That's a new PR for the most yards in one day.  I felt great.  I definitely could have kept going but Cathi was waiting for me.  Actually she fell asleep up in the stands, but the kids were home and already broke the record and didn't need to be a deadbeat Dad the day after thanksgiving.  So now I'm off to play games and hang with the kids!
