The eraser came out on day 2 of my new training plan.

The day began with masters' swim. It went great. After the warmup, the main set was 3 x 200m, 5 x 100, 6 x 50 , then 8 x 25. I felt good.

Work was going well. My jaw and ear which has been aching for weeks now began throbbing. After seeing my MD and 1 week on Levaquin, my next choice was to call the dentist. He was leaving on vacation but there was a 2pm opening. I would have rather waited until Wednesday because it was my anniversary today.

I got to the dentist who immediately took xrays and found there was an abscess on my rt jaw starting to go into the bone. There were no options 2 teeth needed pulled. There went my bike trainer and a wonderful evening with Mr. Waddler. After they were pulled, there was immediate relief. After the numbing wore off, I began the vicodan. Our anniversary celebration was put on hold until the weekend.

Tomorrow's schedule had a run but with the dental work is not an option. I might ride my trainer in the evening.

Happy 19th Anniversary Mr Waddler!!!!

Happy Anniversary! I'm sorry you spent it drugged up. That's only good when you're both hepped up.

I hope you're feeling better!

Happy Anniversary! I *know* too well having to take an eraser to my training plan right as I started it. This was my week 1...and I got sick. Hang in there, recover well. Glad that it was something they could take care of quickly.
