Milestone: Swim 100 miles in one month

So I was watching my mileage for this month and knew that I was coming close to swimming 100 miles in one month, so I made sure to get my yardage to where I could reach that milestone.  This morning I got up at 4:20 and drove to SDRC to do this workout so that I could get in early and still get to work at a decent time.  

I got this workout from Graham Wardell, who said that this workout is "A Real Killer!!"

1200 warmup - 3 x 200 free, 3 x 200 IM
800 - 1 x 800 free on 11:30
1200 - 2 x 600 free on 8:00
1200 - 3 x 400 free on 5:30
800 - 4 x 200's (1st free, 2nd 50 fly/150 free, 3rd 100 fly/100 free, 4th 150 fly/50 free)
1000 - 20 x 50's kick odd 25's steady/fast, even fast/steady on 1:00
400 - 400 pull (50 free/ 50 back) on 6:00
400 - 2 x 200's pull (50 free/50 back) on 3:00
400 - 4 x 100's pull (50 free/50 back) on 1:30
200 - 4 x 50's pull back on 1:00

1000 warmdown Long easy strokes

10,000 yards total

So my total so far on the Lake Huron swim is:  70.83% complete (311,650 yards or 177.07 miles total)  In order to complete my goal of finishing before Dec 31st, I'll have to swim only 73 more miles.  Something I should be able to easily do in December.  The rush is on!
