Birthday swim!
Today is my birthday and I wanted to get a swim in anyway.  My time off is definitely over and I need to start getting in the pool at least 3-4 times a week again.  I'll ramp it up to 6 a week in a few months but 3-4 is good for now.  I'm also going to start using a coach for my training and that will significantly help with my speed and endurance for distance swimming....I hope.
I did not do anything special just a 1000 broken up by some 50's 100's then I did a 500 at the end.  I can definitely feel the month off and know I'm not at square one but close.  :)
BAD NEWS...I had a painful ear infection after Slam the Dam that I had been ignoring for a few weeks prior.  It pretty much went away this last month.  Last night after my swim, I woke up because it hurt so much.  I'm going to a doctor today to get it looked at.  Hopefully I just need some drops and my time away from swimming will be minimal or non at all.  I just know I can't swim again unless I see someone that can look at my inner ear.  It hurts too much after.

1000 yards


  1. Sorry bout the ear. Been there. Not fun at all.

  2. I hope you can get it taken care of. Glad to hear you are back in the pool!
