Didn't ever feel "good"or fast on this. It was a struggle from the first stroke. That is to be expected though given that its my first swim in two weeks. My ears are still plugged up from the inside. I used ear plugs today just to make sure to keep water out.

I'm done taking my antibioticsand I'm still plugged up just as badbut no pain. The Dr. said if it isn't better in two more weeksto come back. I'm not about to skip out on swimming for another two weeksso I'll just use ear plugs until I'm clear. The cause of the infection is NOT from the outsidebut from the inside. I got a cold and the infection came from my nasal areanot from water in my outer ear canal. So that's good.

Next workout is on Wednesday morning.
