Ironweek 15

Leaving this blank would just about do this post justice. I got an ear infection, probably as a result of the heavy waves at my first Tri of the season, which manifested on Thursday. Friday was a bust. Saturday's Long Ride....nope. Sunday - nothing.

So, all I managed was a 5 mile run, 62 miles on the bike and 2625 yards in the pool. 1 run, 2 bikes and 1 swim for nearly exactly 5 hrs of training. Lets put last week behind us - between the ear infection, the CdA house falling apart, and crummy training week, Ironweek 15 is one I'd like to forget.

At least the ear is now all better. I think the CdA house will sort itself out - it looks like a combo of hotel rooms and friends with folks who backed out of the race will be the answer for us. I started this week out with a 10 mile run on Monday - so the week begins with a bang. Time to get off the computer and get to work!

One last thing. I know the Tacboy and Bigun Podcast usually comes out every other Tuesday. That's tomorrow. Um. Yea. I don't think that's gonna happen. Wednesday, at the earliest, could be Thursday. Sorry Commadore, and all our other faithful die-hard listeners. You all are the best, and we here at the TB'nB production studio are working diligently to provide you with quality programming and a humorous show. I'm sure, however, you would not want to hear the 2 hrs that currently makes up Episode 6.

You can get an ear infection from heavy waves?

Well anyway, total bummer! Here's to this week being better than the last!

Here's a tip I got from a fellow ocean swimmer who in turn got it from his ear doctor. For good ear health mix 1 part distilled white vinegar to 1 part clean water and drip the solution into your ears after your open water swim. It will help dry out your ears and leave an acidic residue that kills the bugs that would love to live in your ear.

Ah geez, hate those weeks but like Momo said, they are bound to happen. You've already jumped up and kicked it into gear, that should make you feel better!
