I got a couple of boxes in the mail yesterday, one of which contained something I was admittedly giddy as a school girl about receiving. In addition to other Team USA Speedo apparel, there was my own FSII with my name on it. Cool stuff. So without further ado, here is the hotness:
Pretty exciting. I took it for a test drive this morning in the pool and wow, it was awesome.
In other news, tapering is fun. Today was the first day in the last seven (?) weeks or so that I didnt have to ride my bike, so that was pretty sweet. Needless to say, riding everyday was getting old and it was nice to do a run today WITHOUT having to ride first.
In other other news, I went out to give my talk on Training and Racing with a Heart Rate Monitor to the Tennessee River Athletic Club at First Place Athletics in Florence, AL. Overall the talk went really well as there were plenty of questions and I actually had answers for most of them. Additionally, I was really impressed with the turnout at the meeting and the general activity of the club. They actually put on a ton of races and from I hear although none are huge (maybe on the order of 300 or so people) they all have excellent support and are offered in a variety of locations and at a variety of distances.
