I was just in my office and was looking around at some things I have been liking over the last few weeks and figured I'd snap a few pics and put them up on the blog followed by a little commentary on each item:
This is the newest, "Jack Reacher" novel by Lee Child. I am only a few chapters in but can already tell it is going to be a good one! If you like are looking for a good fast-paced page turner with a badass lead character then pick up some of the Reacher books.
This is the beIRONfit training book by Don Finks. He is an advocate of the time efficient Heart Rate training and has a couple of nice IM Training plans in the books. A very solid and informative read for the Triathlete with a busy life.
Just picked up this Triathlon book! It has over 42 Training plans in it for Sprint, Olympic, Half and Full Ironman Distances. It also has individual plans from "Just Finish" to "Competitive". I wish I had found this book before my first Tri and will probably use the training plans for my next Half IM.
This is a KONG. You fill it with Peanut Butter and give it to your dogs. It provides countless hours of entertainment for the Pugs and they leave me alone. Parents use TV for the same purpose!
This is "The Stick" and it is AWESOME. You basically grab it by the handles and rub it up and down your legs while applying pressure. It works just like a foam roller but you can get to those hard-to-reach places much easier. Last night I rubbed it on my calves, quads, shins, hammies, neck and back. This will travel with me to every race from here on out and be used immediately after.
These are Push-Up handles. Just stick them on the ground and do a push-up. They let you get deeper which gives you a better workout and also they are very comfortable on your wrists. If you have wrist issues these are for you.
This is a Glock 33 with an added pinkie rest on the magazine. The BlackBerry is next to it so you can see the tiny size. It is extremely light and accurate. I have a Concealed Carry license (I am legal) and have been carrying this with me a lot lately. It is so small that I barely know it is there but easily accessible if ever needed. Yes, this is very common in Texas!
This is a CamelBak Hydration System. When I was in PA my Father gave this to me. He used to be an avid Bass Fisherman and bought this for himself. But he recently gave up the sport and had no use for the Camelbak and figured I would like if for my long runs/rides. I tried it out last week and it is pretty darn cool. Thanks Dad!
That is about it! There are a ton of blogger Peeps racing this weekend and I wish you all the best of luck.
Thanks for Reading,
