Half Fast swim

Say "Half Fast swim" fast, and that about sums up today's workout.
Got up at 0420 and was in the water at 0543:

1000 free easy
Masters workout:
300 swim, drill, kick
500 - 500 free @ 80%, long efficient strokes
500 - 5 x 100's free fast (90%) on 1:45 (held 1:10)
500 pull @ 85%
500 - 10 x 50's free fast (95%) on 1:00 (held :32)
500 - 5 x 100's free descend 1-5 on 1:40, 1:35, 1:30, 1:25, 1:20, 1:15
200 easy 
This workout came from Andrew and I loved it.  I was feeling like a putz when I got in and did the 1000. It was slow and I felt like an old fart.  But then the 500 sets really got me going and I was put into first position in my lane with Kris and Scott.  Had to step up.  
 Then stayed after and did:
1000 pull
1000 kick with fins


6000 yards total in 1:58
Feeling very sluggish!  Getting up at 0400 is starting to wear on me.  Tomorrow evening is the cold water swim.  Looking forward to it.  This weekend I'm doing a 20 mile hike with the scouts so I'll probably not do a swim this Saturday since I'll be wasted from that hike!
