Life is Crazy! And Itchy too!!

Yes I am still alive for those who are starting to wonder.  I just got crazy busy and had to adjust my priorities a bit, but I'm good now.  I've probably gained about 5 pounds, but I am still working out though only like twice a week at this point.  Not very good in the triathlon training department, is it?  I also haven't been doing any strength training at all and I can really feel it.  I'm looking forward to getting back into a rhythm.

In other tri-training areas, I haven't been able to go back to the pool lately because my skin is so irritated by the chlorine that it burns now for several days after I swim.  It doesn't seem to matter what I do.  So, my goal in that area is to hydrate like crazy and try to moisturize my skin as often as possible.  I'd love to know if anyone else has ever had this problem.  I swear if feels like I rolled around in fiberglass for days after a swim.  I'm at the point now of my skin feeling itchy all day long and it's been 2 weeks since I last swam.  I went to the doc and next Monday I go back for results of my blood work to see if there's anything in that department.

Well anyway, I hope you have a great week!  Happy Monday everyone!!

  1. I don't notice any reactions to chlorine, but I do take a long shower after I swim. I wonder if there are any products you can use before you get in the pool??
