One last swim for the year. Here's what I did (3300 SCY/65 minutes):

400 free on 8:00 (7:00)
4 x 100 on 2:00 (1:28-1:30)
4 x 50 on 1:00 (:39-:40)

10 x 100 on 1:50 (alt. pull/free: 1:30-1:35/1:25-1:27)
4 x thru 200 free + 50 back (200s were in 3:05-3:15)

100 breast on 2:30 (1:50)
100 IM on 2:30 (1:38)
100 EZ free

Yesterday was an easy day after the 7200-yard effort on Saturday, I did 2400... 400 warm-up free, 400 in back stroke drill and practice, 400 in breast stroke drill and practice, 400 pull and free w/ fins, 400 in butterfly practice (200 Dolphin kick drills, 8 x 25 fly), 400 cool-down (75 back, 75 br, 50 kick, 200 free). The dolphin kick is getting easier, but DOMS is definitely becoming more frequent as I approach another calendar year!

I checked my 14-day totals, counting back from today (12/31) and find that, even with Christmas day off, I managed to get in 51,300 yards... that's over 2000 more than what I did for my two-week WI Water Warrior fitness challenge last year!

I've finished the year with 546+ miles, which might put me in the top-10 for the 40-44 age group on GTD... we'll see. I'll blog my "2012: Year in Review" tomorrow--since it's a day off anyway.

Happy New Years everyone!
