Hot Suits

Tim has just returned from his seasonal fashion buying trip to Milano, and he has some new suits in the pro shop that are hot hot hot (think Brazilian bikini somehow stretched into a racing suit). The first time I tried one on I laughed hysterically at the prospect of actually wearing it out of the locker room. I have children for G-d's sake. I'm not sure anyone in Menlo Park needs to see me in an "Italian style" bottom half of a swimsuit. My immediate thought was that wearing one of these suits would not only be inappropriate (which, incidentally, has never stopped me before) for a 35-year-old mommy of two, but would require weekly waxing. That's expensive.

However, the brand logo for the suit maker is a little skull and crossbones, placed just above the butt of the suit. This is what got me. I'm REALLY into pirates right now, and that's just a really hip little touch. I've reserved one for myself with Tim and I'll be picking it up on Saturday. I'm not sure I'll ever actually wear this suit anywhere but the beach, but if I break it out for practice it better damn well make me faster because it certainly won't be providing much service in the coverage department.

Today's workout:

*warmup: 2 x 300 free. last 50 of each is 3 count drill

descend by long free swims (300 is faster than 500)
*500 free
*3 x 50's drill: catch-up, fingertip drag, thumb touching thigh drill
*400 free
*3 x 50's drill: catch-up, fingertip drag, thumb touching thigh drill
*300 free
*3 x 50's drill: catch-up, fingertip drag, thumb touching thigh drill

long free swims broken at the 100 for 5 seconds. descend by 300.
*300 free
*2 x 50's drill: 5 kicks to a stroke, fist free
*300 free

I think I speak for most of the men on the team when I say:

Oh my ;)

Seriously, this is all Tim's fault. I think Kelly is considering purchasing one too. I think she could use some encouragement :). Gentlemen?

What's the brand of swimsuit and do you have a link to it?

Kelly should definitely get the suit, and Tim is my new best friend :)
