I'm not exaggerating

This morning I swam at SDRC and was in the pool at 0540.  I did my prescribed workout that I wrote up when I woke up:

400 free warm up
200 kick
500 free strong
400 IM
At this point an old lady came up to the lane I was in which I was already sharing and asked how much longer I was swimming.  Every lane was being shared and she was just looking for an opening.  I said, "I have about another hour and a half."  She probably thought I was exaggerating cause most other folks are in an out in well under an hour.  Usually around 20-30 minutes. She was able to find an opening and get in another lane in less than 3 minutes.  
1000 - 5 x 200's 2 free, 1 back, 2 free
800 - 2 x 400 IMs descending
2000 pull large paddles
1800 - 2 x 900s first one finger paddles, second one no equipment strong!
850 - 600 kick with fins, 250 kick no fins
1000 - 10 x 100's free odd sprint (@ 1:07), even easy
250 warm down

9,200 yards total in 2:35

Happy birthday to one of my favorite internet swim friends: Lynn Kubasek.  She's such a neat lady.  Here's video of her Catalina swim a few years back:
