This morning was rough.  My jaw is swollen from the dental work, and according to Dr. Yankem (get it?  Doctor Yack Em?  hehehe) (I’m a tool – I just explained a joke), the swelling will get worse over the next 24-36 hours.  The pain level should also max out by tonight / tomorrow.  This has completely distracted me from training, so I’m giving myself a full day to try to heal up.

I’m still focused on my dream of finishing IRONMAN Santa Rosa this year, along with several other races – I haven’t taken my eyes off of the prize.  However, I also need to allow myself to heal.  Giving myself 24-36 hours to recover is not a bad thing.
