25K Birthday swim

Last night I set my alarm for 0320.  I woke up twice in the night cause I was really looking forward to this swim.  I woke up at 0300 and said OK, 20 minutes left and went back to sleep.  I heard the alarm, but looked over and it was 0500!  It was Cathi's alarm going off and not mine.  I looked over and I had set the alarm, but didn't turn it on!  I was so mad.  I told Chad I was going to be there at 5, and now I wouldn't even get there till like 6.  I hurried and woke up Jonas (who had agreed to come and time me for a 10K postal), and we rushed out the door.

When I got there Chad was waiting for me in his truck.  Oops.  Kinda felt dumb, but hurried in and got changed.  I noticed that they opened the outdoor pool at 0600 instead of 0630 like normal.  Yes!

Sarah, Josh and Goody also showed up to swim.  We chatted for a while and they enjoyed the morning watching the sun come up.

Got in and did a 1,200 warmup, and then had Jonas time me for a 10K.

Aftewards I did:

1000 kick, 5 x 200's IM/free, 1500 pull, 300 backstroke

For the last 10,000 I did:

2 x (1000 kick, 5 x 200's IM/free, 1000 pull large paddles, 1000 no equipment, 1000 small paddles)

25,000 Meters in 8:10
