After hitting my initial target of 1000 miles for the year, I wanted to just hit 1100 by year end to symbolize that I gave 110% this year. This morning was a huge struggle getting out of bed. I hit the snooze button a few times. Cathi was trying to talk me into just sleeping in and taking a day off, but that would mean I'd have to kill it tomorrow, and I want to just take it easy after the polar bear swim and enjoy New Year's Eve as a rest day.
So I got up and was about 10 minutes late getting in the water, but still was able to put in a kick butt day:
12000 - 6 x 2000's free (even no equip, odd pull)
900 kick with fins
13,000 yards total in 3:40
So my year end total is 1101 miles which is a total of 1,938,262 yards. I think it's reasonable to go for 2 million yards next year which is 1136 miles. That will definitely be a stretch. It's been a hardcore year and it seems more and more difficult to top my own history, but I'm gonna keep trying. Tomorrow's year end post will be a pretty good summary of the year with highlights.
