New PR - longest swim without stopping (even for feeds)

Today's workout was non stop.  Not even open turns, or grabbing a drink.  Just go straight through!  Granted I paced myself and did a grandpa channel pace, but my time to completion wasn't completely awful.  So I was pleased.  Here's how I counted it to keep track:

6 x (2000 free, 100 back)
12,600 yards total in 3:10

I had a gatorade bottle in my bag and once I got out of the water I walked over and downed that thing in one swig.  Never tasted so good.  Had lower back ache from the stupid flip turns at the half way point.  Took quite a bit of mental power to distract myself from that.  Glad I finished it.
