One of my favorite moments of the day

Getting up at 3:40 am pretty much sucks.  I sit up and move my feet off the side of the bed.  Cathi lately has been scratching my back for about 30 seconds while I wake up and get my bearings.  That simple act makes one of the hardest moments of the day, turn into one of my favorite moments of the day!  She's such a fantastic woman!

This morning I was in the pool at 5:00 sharp and did:

3000 free straight
3000 - 2 x 1500's free (first one pull, second one no equipment)
Half way through the last set I just wasn't feeling energized, and felt like crap.  Within a few minutes quite a few people got in the pool and it started to fill up.  A couple people got in my lane and initiated a change to circle swimming.  I didn't mind, in fact it kind of got my mind off of how tired I was.  It was exactly what I needed to get back into it and swim with some umph!  
3000 - 1000 kick, 1000 pull, 10 x 100's alternate stroke/free on 2:00, 1:30
1500 - 2 x 750's free strong on 11:00
750 - 500 strong, 100 sprint (1:11), 100 back, 50 breast

11,250 yards in 3:18
