This morning my swim went much better than yesterday. I was able to get into meditation mode within the first 1000. My last set with IM's in it was also very good. Got some good speed and strength on those even though I had already swam 9000 yards.
3000 yards effortless free 1000 - 2 x 500's kick w/fins 2000 - 2000 pull w/ankle bands 3000 - 3000 effortless free 1000 - 10 x 100's odd IM, even free on 1:45 100 - 2 over unders
Felt great, no joint issues, or weakness.
I'm very thankful to have the health that allows me to do what I want to do - SWIM!
