3 Million yards

Today I hit a major milestone, 3,000,000 yards logged swimming ever since I started logging in 1989.  That's just pool swimming, not including open water.

Nearly a million of those three have been logged in the last 6 months.

I started my swim exactly at 5:30am and did:

2000 yards free

Then joined Masters with:

300 warmup
300 - 6 x 50's choice drill
300 - 6 x 50's no kick board or fins
400 - 4 x 100's free/breast/back/fly
400 pull strong!
400 kick with fins
400 IM
Celebrating hitting the 3 Million Yards milestone
400 - 4 x 100's on 1:15
I was very pleased with my (1:09, 1:10, 1:12, 1:14) times on these
100 easy

Then resumed on my own with:
5000 - 10 x 500's pull on 7:00 descending (First one was 6:28 and last one I got 5:56)  I really felt good on these.
100 Inverted Breaststroke

10,100 yards total

One might ask, "How do you know you've gone 3 million yards?"  In addition to having a blog post for every single open water and pool swim with details, I've been tracking all my totals on this spreadsheet.  I keep it current every time I swim so it's pretty accurate.
