Swimming to pure exhaustion

This morning I got to SDRC at 0500 and did a quick lifting session for 30 minutes.  Lifted legs.  When I got in the pool I was already pretty tired.  Only was able to get in 700 yards before the Masters workout began:

400 warmup
400 - 8 x 50's free on :55
600 - 8 x 75's kick/drill/swim on 1:15
400 - 4 x 100's finger paddles on 1:30
200 - 4 x 50's kick
400 - 4 x 100's free on 1:25
200 - 4 x 50's kick
400 - 4 x 100's pull on 1:15
200 - 4 x 50's kick

Then moved to the northside and did:

200 free easy
400 kick fins
600 - 3 x 200 IMs no rest
800 pull
800 pull
600 - 3 x 200 IMs no rest
400 kick fins
200 free easy
200 - 2 x 100s strong on 1:30
100 - 2 x 50's Fast/EZ on :45

8,200 yards in 2:30

When I got out I was completely spent.  I was really tempted to get out starting around 5400 yards, but stuck it out.  Victory for the day.
