Missed the alarm

Revised post for today:

When I woke up this, my shoulder was really quite sore.  I fell asleep so quickly last night that I remember waking up slightly in the middle of the night to remove my glasses from my face.  I also forgot to set my alarm, so when Cathi's alarm went off at 4:30 to run I realized my oversight and jumped out of bed.  Too late to hit the gym before the swim, so I went straight to the pool, and I'll plan to stop at the gym on the way home from work this evening.

I got to the pool and came up with this workout (which I was hoping that James would join me on, but it was just me solo this morning):

1000 - 2 x (300 warmup, 200 drill)
1600 - 2 x (8 x 100's free descending 1 - 4 on 1:30 (1:18, 1:16, 1:14, 1:10) extra minute rest between sets of 4)
400 - 2 x (2 x 100's kick with fins on 1:50)
1200 - 2 x (3 x 200 IM) on 3:30
1600 - 2 x (2 x 400 free pull odd agility paddles, even star trek paddles or finger paddles) on 6:00
200 free easy

6,000 yards total in 1:50

Went straight up to Huntsman to see Goody.  Met his Mother, and also had a good chat with Goody about a number of things.  He is the life blood of SLOW.  I was watching him in action at the meet last Saturday and that guy has some real talent making people feel welcome and included.  He genuinely had a great time at the meet not only swimming, but just shaping a real family out of friends and colleagues.  Made me wish I could be more like that.
