Eye on the prize

I've wanted to hit the 750 mile mark for 2012, and I'm less than 10 miles away now.  Only have 2 more swimming days available to do them in.  So I've got to hit it hard.  This morning I got to the pool right at 6am and got in the water, but I was the only masters swimmer.  Coach Andy gave me the following workout, which I did twice through:

Warm up:
400 -  200 swim, 100 IM easy, 4 x 25's free fast on :30
Main set:
2100 - :3 x {300 pull, 2 x 100 IM's on 1:45, 4 x 50's fast on 1:00}
600 - 8 x 75's fast/ez/fast odd free, even back or breast on 1:15/1:30
After doing that twice I did:
400 kick with fins
400 - 300 pull freestyler paddles, 100 anti paddles
50 grandpa swimming

7,050 yards total in 2:30

Still feel awesome about yesterday evening's 1.5°C swim.  The New Years Race is gonna be cake.
