Today was a nice rest day. I actually felt like doing a workout but have a s/b/r back-to-back-to-back training day scheduled on Saturday so I figured I should follow the plan and take the rest.
Tomorrow I am taking my bike down to Tri on the Run. It is a Tri specific retail store and I stopped by this afternoon in between appointments. They have the saddle that I want in stock ... it is the Adamo Racing Saddle. And they were cool enough to offer me to bring my bike in and we can see which style of the Adamo saddles fits the best. Can't wait to try it out because my current saddle is killing my arse!
Over the next couple of weeks I have a couple of new items that I am going to try out. The first one is a hydration product called The Right Stuff. It was developed for Astronauts by NASA and has since been introduced to the endurance athlete. It is a Gatorade like product except it doesn't have the Carbs and Calories. The people at The Right Stuff were kind enough to send me some of the product. I am going to try it out on Saturday during my long workout and then again next week during the Austin 1/2 Marathon. A review will follow shortly thereafter.
I also won a box of Chocolate #9 from the Beginner Triathlete website. If you post a product review they enter you into a monthly raffle and last month I was the victor! This stuff is a lot like GU and Hammer Gel but is organic. Going to try this out a couple of times also.
So, will be reviewing the Adamo Saddle, the Chocolate #9, and The Right Stuff. This should keep me busy for a while.
Thanks for Reading,
