Week Six, Day Three: Day of Rest + New Goggles!

Today my new swimming goggles arrived via USPS. They are the Aqua Sphere Kayenne Goggles and they look very cool. I decided to pick a pair of these up after reading a positive review at Jason's Tri-Tech Blog (Thanks Jason!).  My current goggles are a pair of $8 Speedos that have a leak in the left eye and hurt my face after about 20 minutes of wearing them.
Here are some pics of my new goggles:

Smoke Lenses Kayenne Goggles.

Look at this badass - sorry I was chewing on Almonds.

I love the way these goggles feel and can't wait to try them out.  And if I ever become a ninja I will already have the eye-wear!

My training plan had a rest day scheduled for today and I thought about going for a run.  But as my lovely wife pointed out to me, "The plan has the rest day scheduled for a reason, don't be an idiot."  So with that sound advice the plan was followed.

Tomorrow is a 1:15 run in the morning and a 45 minutes swim after work. 

BTW - For some reason I cannot wait to see this movie.  I am a sucker for post-apocalyptic supernatural action flicks and this one looks rather cool:

Thanks for Reading,



  1. I'm diggin' those goggles dude. You're already swimming faster standing right there. Now if you bump into Izzy Mandlebaum again, he'll just stay out of the pool and race-walk along side you.

  2. Yeah, those things are pimpin'!!!

    Seriously, I gotta get me one of those!!!

  3. Ha ha love those!! They actually look like a style of Oakleys!

    Can't wait to see how you like em.
