I am STOKED to finally have found (fingers crossed) someone to bring me tri shorts. I had purchased some lovely De Soto Forza shorts (on sale here at Swimoutlet) and had them at Merkalink on 8/20 to get imported. I finally got the shipment a couple days ago and found the shorts had been left at the Merkalink offices as they were deemed "used" clothing and not possible to import. ACK! Also the girls got only tops of one swim suit and bottoms of another as the matching parts were deemed to be used. So off I headed to the local and triathlon (and eventually even scuba) forums to find a mule. Dayum, but mules are HARD to find in Septihambre. FINALLY an angel offered last night, IF I could get the stuff there by Thursday. Next week. Yikes! I TOTALLY spaced on the fact that the HIM is an a week. For some reason I thought I had another one.
George along with a new pair of running shoes. I had PF starting to rear its ugly head in my left heel and the shoes seemed to have arrived just in time as after a 90 min run today my heel is good to go. Jamie put the saddle on in time for Thursday's ride but I unfortunately didn't realize the reaction I had going on for today's ride and while it was uncomfortable, I didn't have the specific pain I've had before. I'm very hopeful that tomorrow's ride, under the influence of steroids, I'll be much more comfortable. It's like Christmas around here with all the new gear!
So I guess I should revise that list above. New shoes? Check. New bras? Check. I am LOVING bras that aren't like jails. I got these just for cycling as I figured I really need something SUBSTANTIAL for running, but LOVING these (or is it just the fact that I'm buying new stuff?) for running also! New swim shirt (better than sunscreen)? Check. New (to me) saddle? Check. New shorts? Check (and loving them. The tempos might be on the way out). Yup! Definitely Christmas time.
