200 miles in GSL

After Saturday's swim in the GSL, I passed the 200 mile mark in that body of water.  Also hit the 500 mile mark in open water.   A couple nice little milestones.  But it makes me realize I'm still a newbie.   500 miles is only about 6 months of solid swimming, and only 15% of my total logged distance.  That number shows I'm still swimming a huge majority of the time in the pool.  However I didn't start swimming open water until 4 years ago, and my logged total includes many more years than that.

This morning I did 400 yards before Masters:

600 Warmup
900 - 12 x 75's drill swim/stroke by 25 on 1:10
600 - 12 x 50's kick (fins on :55)
1400 - 7 x 200's rolling free/stroke (175 free, 25 stroke, 150 free, 50 stroke, 125 free, 75 stroke....) on 2:50
1250 - 10 x 125's alt fast/easy by 25 on 1:50

Did my own thing after:
1000 kick with fins
2000 pull
2000 finger paddles
100 free strong
100 grandpa

10,350 yards total in 3:08
