This has been a good week for swimming, for me. On Labor Day, we swam at one of the FSU pools (Morcom), and the water was cool, the sun was shining, and BONUS: the FSU men's team was there too - eye candy! (JK - They were on the other side of the bulkhead!)
Main set was 10 x 200, dropping the interval after #3 & #6 by 10 seconds each time. I was swimming well, and was pretty tired afterward. We did about 4200.
Tuesday, the water was 74-75 degrees. I swam 3000 practically straight and then ran to the showers!
Yesterday I finally got my butt back to the gym, and swam an easy 2000 afterwards to stretch it out. Which was smart, because, today, ouch!
Had a flippin' Olympian next to me this AM. He was cruising along doing our 200s at 2:04, 2:05, I was THRILLED to be about 2:33! I haven't really been asked to do many 1:20s lately, so today was ruff, but I was pleased with how I did.
800 warmup
5 x 200 pull @ 2:40
100 easy
10 x 100, drop interval by 5 sec every 2, starting (for me) at 1:40
6 x 150 free/kick/free by 50 on 2:30
300 easy breaststroke
500 pull w/only a buoy
Total ~4500

AND it's supposed to rain all weekend, and the temps are supposed to drop a bit. Guess I'll swap yard work for CEU's and Scrapbooking

    Wait, this has gotta be SCY, right? It seems like you usually swim long course.
    ...So you were holding ~2:33s for 200s PULL on 2:40?! Good work! Nobody is going to accuse you of being out of shape!

    Are you faster with a PB? Although it would push my threshold, I imagine that I could make 5x200/2:40 swimming regular freestyle. If I had to use a PB I think that I would be in trouble.
