I defaulted to 100 pace today because I was tired from the weekend's sprint workouts and weights yesterday. I'm still somewhat ambivalent about my "comeback" ... it's frustrating to feel physically limited and I know it's going to take awhile to be swimming/racing fit again. But I nonetheless purchased a new tech suit today to use this spring as there are only old ones in my closet. Though I like Arenas, I wasn't moved to pay $550 for the newest model. So I opted for the new A3 VICI suit. And, unlike, Arenas, it comes in black!

    Tech suits are so stupid expensive now... I thought they'd go back down in price after supersuit years but I guess not. All I really want is one of the old FSIs!

    Yeah, now the highest end tech suits cost much more than the banned B70s and last a much shorter time ... I really just want my old Arena carbon pro, but those are long gone now. I see you signed up for Indy -- fantastic! I am tentatively planning on going.

    I found a Speedo LZR Racer Pro (how many descriptors do they need?!) in a size that actually fits on sale for half off the other day and jumped on it. They had FSIIs on sale too but about 3 sizes too big.

    And yes, all signed up to beat the entry fee increase - I'm excited! Hope to see you and other blog denizens there. My age group (25-29) looks like it's one heck of a minefield, glad I only have one more year in it :P
