I was all set to race tomorrow but my mouth has gotten in the way. By that, I mean a huge abscess requiring a big scary root canal has presented itself and I can't get an appointment to fix it until Monday. They did give me pain pills (which make me sleep all day). I'm not sure I want to Open Water Swim when high on Vicodin and barely conscious. Although, it might be an improvement since I PANIC in open water!
Anyway, I am bummed. And my least favorite tooth hurts. And Vicodin is no fun. Why do people take this for recreation? I am sad and tired on it. If that is better than not taking it for some people, I need to stop and count my blessings, like immediately.
Here's a totally unrelated graphic that makes me laugh every April 25th:
So, no sprint tri tomorrow. I'm tough, but I'm not mouth-pain tough.
