Tips for ordering Technical Suit!

I just ordered a new technical racing suit! I haven't in several years, gloating how I my existing ones have lasted so long. But alas, they are way too stretched out and so used that they show that disintegration like your old lycra suits used to! Yuck!
*Only interested in Speedo
*Don't like the new closed back suit. I think it would make me look thick, fat, and sausage-like. Also the most expensive at $449.
*Don't like the colored suits. They would make my colored thigh look fat.
*Do want an Elite 2. Mostly because it's the newest. Must be in black.
*Comfort straps are intriguing. Is it worth the difference between $395 and $429? Yes, I think so. And I don't think they would make me look fat.
Free shipping, and not a rush order so who cares 2 day or 7 day
Any coupon, which is hard for a technical suit
Go to retailmenot and get that coupon code (before 03/31!). I couldn't figure out the free goggle thing, which it wouldn't seem to give me, but I didn't want to pass this suit discount of 10%!
So I got the $429 suit for a total of $386.10. I think they gave me an extra dollar off.
This is Fraternity of Flyers month!
Today's main fly set was
8 x 50's on :55
2 x fly/free
2 easy free
3 x fly/free
1 easy free
Sprint the fly bits.
Now, this sounds easy as you only do 5 x 25's fast fly for the entire round, but for some reason I was dying, just absolutely dying through this set. Maybe because I was doing it right. It was one of those days where if someone poked you with a pinky, you'd probably just collapse. And I was really irritated with my lane. The girl behind me was doing all free. So was the next guy. Then the next guy was doing backstroke with fins. Then the next guy was swimming freestyle with a snorkel swimming up the backstroker's backside. I thin there might have been someone else after that but maybe it was just a manifestation of a composite irritating swimmer.
I have decided that I am not going to swim tomorrow or Wednesday, if I am going to be in this bad of a mood and irritated with my lanemates!
