Ordered my trisuit!

Trisuit news later in post!  Had a good workout today, but so incredibly sweaty.  I did some walking and jogging on the indoor track today, then NROLW:

  • Barbell squat/push press: 1 x 10 22 pounds, 2 x 10 45 pounds
  • Step ups: 2 x 10 with 30 pound dumbbells
  • Dumbbell 1 point rows: 2 x 10 with 25 pound dumbbells
  • Static lunge with rear foot elevated: 2 x 10 25 pound dumbbells
  • Pushups: 2 x 10
  • Plank: 2 x 60 second holds
  • Cable woodchop: 2 x 10 50 pounds.

My balance is getting better on the 1 point rows now.  Called John to meet me for brekkie.  Then I jogged around the outside track for about 15 minutes before I left to meet him (he was biking).  I was totally drenched in sweat by the time I finished.  The heat has hit upstate NY!


Yum!  I noticed more flowers in bloom today in the garden when I got back home, so took some pictures:

lily2Daylilies (divisions from my parent’s house)

clemsHeliopsis clematis – this thing gets enormously tall!


Speedwell – these look cool on breezy days.

And now the exciting news – I placed an order for my triathlon suit!

I am so excited!  This will be great because I can use it just for my general bike rides and runs.  I am a little nervous about a body hugging outfit, but it really isn’t that much worse than the picture of me in the side bar with bike shorts.  Here is a pic (wish that were me in the photo!):


I wasn’t too thrilled about the pink (I have sworn off buying any more pink stuff!),  but this actually was the cutest one out there that was affordable to me.  And you can’t beat the price – $67.50 plus free shipping!   It’s hard to find just the shorts or a top for much less than that.  I guess it’s on sale because it isn’t a 2009 suit style?  I can’t wait for it to arrive!  I hope it fits, I fell inbetween sizes, so I upped to the large per their recommendation.  I think the worse thing would be to have a compression suit too small!  It’s only coming from NYC, so it should get here pretty fast.

    I love the trisuit, and I giggled, because I kept reading it as triscuit too. I was thinking, man, she must love those crackers! I got my swim shorts today, and I like them pretty good…the top half of me probably looks better in my swimsuit alone, but I feel a lot more comfortable with the shorts covering my legs. For now I’m just going to wear them over my swimsuit, but maybe eventually I’ll get one of those tops.

    Can you share the company you ordered your suit from?

    Love the trisuit!! It’s so cute! Don’t worry about how you’ll feel in it, you’ll be surrounded by people looking silly in tight clothing 😛

    Love the flower pictures, lilies are my fav flower 🙂

  3. Diane, fit to the finish

    I think it’s very cute. You will look great in it! The good thing about wearing that is that if you didn’t wear one at the race, you would definitely look silly next to all the other people in theirs!

    OMG, I read it the same way as Shelley: Triscuit! I thought, “Can’t you just get those in the store?” LOL

    Anyway, you’re gonna rock that TRISUIT. Body hugging spandex also holds everything in place. It looks very comfy, you’ll feel like you’re not wearing much at all when you compete. Will you model and post pics?

    LOve the suit! I think your gonna look great in it. Don’t be hypercritical. Its gonna help you do your best at the tri right? A means to an end. And i think we are always more critical of ourselves than other people. You would probably stand out more if you weren’t wearing one.
    Lvoe the flowers, I do my best to stick with native varieties here as they take less water and can stand up to the heat. We’ve been at 100 every day for weeks now. No rain. Just baking. I’ve been wanting to try a daylily but i’m afraid they take too much water. I should post some of my flower picures…hmmm i just might. Have an awesome day! Jinx!
