Home Training for a Triathlon

Ear Problems


I have entered my first Triathlon which is on 2nd April.  I have been training twice a week in a pool for the last two months with no problems.  Last Sunday I decided to see if I could still do tumble turns and tried it in the deep end.  I regretted it instantly as I had a sharp pain in my right ear.  I have a perforated eardrum caused by a T Tube falling out which was inserted  about 20 years ago. Needless to say, I am now on antibiotics for an ear infection.  I would like advice on what ear plugs/hat to get to enable me to carry on training/competing.  Does anyone else swim with a perforated ear drum?

 Many thanks
