13 miles on Friday the 13th

Work or swim?  Tough choice.  SWIM!  I had planned on taking the morning off to go to a film session with Utah State Parks, but they postponed it to next week.  I was looking forward to it, and couldn't bear going in to work when I have the biggest swim of my life so far coming up in nearly 2 weeks.  So I was in the SDRC pool at 6:30 and did:

1000 free
1800 - 2 x 900's free (100 back, 800 free)
2400 - 3 x 800's (100 fly, 100 back, 600 free)
2800 - 4 x 700's 
3000 - 5 x 600's pull :15 ri
3000 - 6 x 500's TT start on :98 increase by 1 every set, end on 1:03
2800 - 7 x 400's odd IM, even free no rest
800 - 8 x 100s kick with fins

17,600 yards

Then I got out and went directly to Bountiful Lake.  It was very sunny, but the water was cold!  59° on the edge, but once I got out there, a very cold current that I'm guessing is 53° for about 25 yards was on the north end.  The north end in general was about 57°.  While the south end was about 61°.  

Did 3 laps.  Got pretty cold in the water, but didn't get the shakes afterwards because the air temp was 78°.  Got some good sun.  So glad I took the opportunity to swim today and that I was able to hit my goal for the day instead of letting the excuses that popped up in my head prevail. 

13 miles total for the day
