Long swim

I rode down to Chelsea Piers planning to base myself here for the whole day and do my long swim and long run, but realized at halfway mark that I forgot water belt and gel.  Since I gotta go 2:15, I think that's no good; will ride home and head out from my apartment shortly after three (need a digestive interval post-lunch).

Swim went very well, mentally pretty easy aside from tendency for thoughts to drift to food in second half!

1:32:31 as total workout time

(1) 500 free with every fifth length alt. BK, BR
(2) 5 x 100 drill-swim by 25 (front scull, fists, catch-up, thumbs, finger-drag)
(3) breathe every 3, 5, 7, 5, 3 by 100

Swimming always makes me starving! Maybe it is because I unintentionally avoid eating beforehand? Either way, all I ever want is lots of food when I finish, which is kind of defeating!
