Today was a mental day for sure.  I had a hard time getting out of bed this morning and was making excuses for why I should go home and back to sleep the whole time I was driving to the gym.  If it wasn't for Kim, I probably would have caved.  That's one of the biggest benefits of having a training partner, you don't want to let them down by not showing up.  Makes you look like an inconsiderate jerk when you do.
Today I made up my own workout.
600 warmup with kicking and drills mixed in.
 8 x 100 pull
4 x 200 free with various amounts of effort depending on the set.  One set I hit 2:40 and the fastest set I hit 2:34
2 x 400 pull with buoys at ankles for 2nd set
800 swim pacing at 1:30 per 100.
200 CD

4000 total
I looked at my total for last month and did 18 swims totaling over 70,000 yards.  That is nice but I soon realized that it only goes up by each month.  I think This month I need to get over 100,000 yards.
I'm also at 15% of my year end goal of 500 miles.  I'm on track!
