Yesterday I was planning to do an OW swim @ GSL marina in the afternoon, but as I was heading there from work realized I left my USP pass in my other car.  So I thought I'd go home and get it and then swim @ Antelope Marina.  But when I got home I was dying of hunger and ate something, and then I got caught up helping kids with various things and also realized that I've been wanted to put a picture together for the Wasatch Front Polar Bear Club I'm trying to organize.  So I took the time to put together a cartoon that will go on the hoodies that members of the club can purchase.
Here's the pic.
Do you have what it takes!
So since I flaked on my swim yesterday, I went to bed early so that I could get up early for a longer swim today, and punish myself with a 12K swim.  Although punishment really has a negative tone to it.  I would just say "make up" or something.  Today's workout was far from punishment.  It was actually quite fun!

Got up at 0350 and was in the water at 0501.  Here's what I did:

4000 - 2 x 2000 < :30 ri
Right into Masters workout at 7am:
300 warmup
400 - 8 x 50's touch and pull drill on :45
300 - 6 x 50's kick on 1:00
Main Set:
2500 - 5 x 5 x 100's free (first 2 sets of 5 on 1:30, 3rd set 1:25, 4th - 1:20, 5th - 1:15 pull.  2 min rest between sets of 5)

The guy who I swam with today and yesterday, his name is Chad.  Kind of a bigger dude.  Doesn't look like an athlete (alot like me!) But he's pretty quick.
After the main set, I moved over to the north end of the pool because the HS kids were kicking us out.  I continued with:

700 easy
4000 - 1000 pull, 1000 free no equip, 1000 pull, 1000 kick with fins  < :60 between sets

Total Distance: 12,000 yards
Time: 3.5 hours
