Getting back into good habits

Lately there has been a little devil that gets on my shoulder as I get off the freeway at 4:50am every morning.  He says, "Hey, you have a ton of work to do at Tomax, just go to work early and get a head start on the day.  You can get off early and swim on the way home, or something".  I've given in to this little devil a couple of times, and that is a BAD HABIT!  So this morning I told that little devil to go back to hell and kept driving up 400 S until I got to the pool.  Good choice.  Did 1050 free before joining Masters.  Here's Kyle's workout:

600 free
900 - 12 x 75's rolling IM on 1:15
1000 - 400, 300, 200, 100 pull descending each 100 on 1:20 base
1000 - 100, 200, 300, 400 pull ascending each 100 on 1:20 base
600 - 8 x 75's kick odd free, even breast/dolphin
500 - 10 x 50's descending breath starting at 10 (I had to cheat on the second to last one, so I took an extra 30 seconds on the last one so that I could legitimately get 1 breath on the 50) on 1:00

1000 free easy
1000 finger paddles and ankle strap


7,650 yards in 2:10

I think I'm gonna make my range 7-9K per day for the rest of this month.  With a weekly minimum of 46K (26 miles/week) Then I'll pick it up in April.  Also I really need to do some cross training 2-3 times a week.  I've gotten really weak in my shoulders and chest.  Need to pick that back up.
