Trying to stay ahead of the pack

So unless the swimmers who aren't reporting are keeping dirty little secrets, I'm in first place position in the Lake Huron Virtual Race.  Looks like I'm going to have to step it up just a tad, to stay ahead of Matt Hooper, who I'm sure he is going to try catching up, so I'll have to anticipate that and also put in more.  Thing that makes me feel a little comfortable is that for a whole week in October, I pretty much was out of commission with a bad lower back.  So if I don't have that issue anymore, my yardage in November will naturally be quite a bit more than Octobers.  Yippee!

Here's today's workout:

200 free
300 IM drill
2000 - 10 x 200's first 100 IM, second 100 free recovery on 3:30
900 - 12 x 75's 25 kick, 50 free fast on 1:30
500 swim easy :20-:30 ri
500 kick with fins :20-:30 ri
500 - 5 x 100 IMs fast on 2:00
500 pull :20-:30 ri
500 swim strong (beat first 500 time by :30)
Ended up beating it by :25 (7:10/6:45)
1000 2 x (2 x 100's on 1:30, 2 x 150's on 2:15)
100 - 2 x 50 over unders (25 under water completely, 25 free recovery) on 1:15
