Training Log – First Half of Week 13

Needless to say, I am a little dismayed because of a toothache or TMJ or something that has found it’s way into my mouth. I went to the dentist on Monday and they took x-rays and sent me out the door with a referral to a endodontist saying they would evaluate me. I’ve been training this week and nursing my mouth in hopes that whatever is wrong, I can wait until after my meet on the 8th of April to get it fixed. I go to the specialist tomorrow, so will have a definitive answer (I hope) by then. Either way, I WILL be competing on April 8 and I WILL be qualifying for Nationals again 🙂
