I'm going insane...

This week has been ROUGH for training/just living...  I am BATTLING a pretty intense case of Folliculitis (inflammation of hair follicles).  Nothing too serious, but I have been itchy. Non-stop, can't sleep, can't think, can't swim, shouldn't sweat excessively (so no training...).  I am on some antibiotics which appear to be slowly working.  But definitely not as quick as I want.

Training:
Swims have been a no go this week, I'm hoping to be able to get back in the pool on Monday. Also missed a ride (Doc said no bike shorts for a week, too).  Yeah, not exactly on my training schedule 2 weeks before the Topeka Tinman on the 18th.  Sucks, but I just am hoping I get this cleared up before it gets worse. I just want to be able to sleep....

Clinical:
I had my first day yesterday, and it went great. My supervisor is going to be awesome, I work 4 10 hour days a week, so I get Thursdays off!  Pretty awesome.  I got pretty excited about the possibility of fitting in a long run or bike in the middle of the week, just not this week.  Going to be great!

For my first Thursday off, this is my view:

Cleaning out the DVR, Parks and Rec!
Yup, sitting on the couch.  The 3 things of toenail polish, I swear, are not mine....  Just going to get some laundry done, work on an online class, and try to get a short brick in later today, even though I'm not supposed to... Don't tell my Doc!

Inflamed hair follicles? Did you get that at the Bikesource tri? Should get checked??? That's an odd condition...

Thanks, and I guess it's possible. But I highly doubt that's where I got it. Just kinda an freak thing. The timing just sucks.
