Gearing up for April Fool's Challenge

Swam 1800 yards before Masters began. Amazed that my shoulders felt so good considering Saturday's long swim.  Hopeful that this April Fool's Swim Challenge is gonna go well.

5,300 yards total in 1:35

Short one cause tomorrow I'm planning to swim 10K yards.

Another big milestone today.  Over the past 6 months I've participated in the online Virtual Open Water race.  A 250 mile course that starts at the very northwest tip of the United States and Canada and swimming south along the Washington/Oregon Coast.  Every year that I've participated I've doubled that goal distance and swam 500 miles in the 6 month time frame starting from October 1st, through the end of March.  Well as of this morning, my total came to 509.54 miles.  Fantastic!

Here's a map of the virtual course (with bonus distance totaling 509 miles).
