8 Million Yards

Ever since I first started logging my workouts, and keeping track of them on my TotalYardsSwam spreadsheet, this morning I hit a milestone: 8 Million Yards.  Sounds impressive, but I don't count them in individual yards, my brain would explode.  I count them by 50's.

8 Million yards = 4,545 miles  To put that in perspective, that's about the same distance as swimming from Pismo Beach, CA to Hawaii and back.  Granted that's taken me many years to do.

This morning I hit a major wall on the way down my favorite ladder workout:

100 free easy
200 IM
300 - 4 x 75's drill/free/drill by 25 on 1:10
400 kick with fins
500 large paddles freestyle
600 - 3 x 200 IMs no rest
700 - 2 x (250 free + 100 back) :10 ri
800 - 4 x 200's free on 3:00
900 - 9 x 100's free on 1:27.5
1000 agility paddles free
900 - 9 x 100's free (first five on 1:25, then hit the wall.  last four on 1:30)
skipped to 400....

300 - 4 x 75's drill/free/drill by 25 on 1:15
