Double today puts me at...

299.92 miles for the year so far. Seriously?! I do a double and I come .08 miles short of the 300-mile mark? Whatever.
I'll pass the 300 miles tomorrow with my warm-up. Today I did an early lake swim just to loosen up: 2000 yards, mostly freestyle, but mixed in about 300 in back and 300 in breast.
This afternoon on my way home from work I stopped at the Y to do a little drill work, because I didn't have the equipment at the lake. Just 1200, as follows:
100 EZ free
100 pull w/ buoy
8 x 25 SDKs w/ short fins on :40
8 x 25 BK SDKs and kick w/ short fins on :30
2 x 50 BR kick w/ board on 1:15
2 x 50 BR pull w/ buoy on 1:15
2 x 50 BR hard on 1:15 (:50, :51)
2 x 50 fr pull w/ buoy
4 x 50 fr swim golf on 1:00 (was swimming a real easy :45-:46 pace in avg. 25-26 strokes/50, which means I was scoring around 71... one over par? Not bad for a recovery day cool-down).
Tomorrow: a lot more challenging. A repeat of last Wednesday's workout for 1500 and 400 IM goal-paces. It'll be interesting to see how my times compare and if I'm adapting well enough to the recent changes in my routine to feel these workouts getting easier. I'll wait for tomorrow, but am already thinking about what ramping up from here might look like if I'm adapting well enough.
