I have joined a triathlon club and I had an ingrown infected toenail which they treated without anaesthetic...
I can tell you I am not showing the other photos I have of it. It was extremely painful before, and during, but now it's fine.
I am also learning to swim properly now with my club. The breathing is bit hard but I will get there. I am enrolled for a sprint race at the end of March. I don't think I will be ready as I haven't been running at all. But I will give it a shot. I am going to focus eventually on very long distance but a sprint will at least tell me where I am at.
That's it that's my gorey news. :-)
