Man I'm dumb

After cleaning out my car looking for my SLOW keychain, I realized that I most likely put it on top of my car after a GSL swim, and drove off.  I hope someone finds it and calls the number on it.  But so far no call, and my cool new club keychain only lasted a week.  Lame...

This morning I was actually in the pool promptly and was able to start the workout with James for a change:

400 swim
200 - 4 x 50's kick
200 - 4 x 50's stroke/free
1000 - 2 x (25 easy, 50 (fast/easy), 75 (fast,easy,fast) 100 (fast,easy,fast,easy) and back down)
1350 - 3 x (150 pull strong on 2:00, 150 buoy only strong on 2:00, 150 kick/free by 25)
200 - 4 x 50's fast/easy by 25

Did the above workout all over again, however about halfway through I hit a wall, the kind where I could feel the energy in my legs running completely out and was looking for muscle to eat.    I was torn between just staying in the pool and just finishing and then eating something right after the workout, or to take a quick break and get some fuel.  I figured if I stuck with it, while admirable, would result in crappy form and slow times,

So I took a quick break, ran out to my car and ate a couple Powerbar Performance Energy bars.  That was the right choice because within 5 minites I was a new man!

After completing the workout twice I did one more set of pull/buoy/weighted 25s:

1350 - 3 x (150 pull strong on 2:00, 150 buoy only strong on 2:00, 2 x (25 weighted free, 50 strong))
50 easy

8,100 yards quality swimming in 2:15
