I slept 10 hours last night, which is not so easy for me to do these days. I hope to repeat it again sometime, as it made a huge difference in my day.

The workout today was mostly technical and recovery. Started out swimming with fins-snorkel-paddles for steady state smooth 6-kick freestyle with partial CU into EVF pull, followed by swimming with paddles-buoy-tube breathing at 3 strokes striving for strong steady pull with hip rotation. Then finally swimming the 50s with no equipment combining the steady smooth 6-kick with strong hip centered rotational pull, breathing mostly at 3 strokes and sometimes each cycle.
