Wish list

"You never tell me what you want!"

Well, that's a true statement - I'm bad about letting my Christmas or Birthday wish list known. Usually, I've got a big purchase that's at the top of mind, and I can't really see beyond it. This year...not so much.

While I haven't been logging uber-yardage in the pool, my time has finally come, and I really know that I can hardly stand the long, dreary sets that make up a swim workout. These will really help to make those mornings go by much quicker...


And these would make all workouts...swim, bike and run...fly by. Plus, then I could actually listen to mine, and others' Podcasts while I train. Neat concept. BTW - I need the NANO too...



Here's a little item I just came across. I'm not sure if my current aero-drink bracket will work with this one - it looks like it may - but with the caps and the added liquid volume...this could work for me.



I've been scouring e-bay and slowtwitch classifieds for either


this or this.










Not sure which I'd prefer, but it has to be tubular, and of course I need it NOW. I guess I'd rather have the Deep (Hed Jet 90 is the new version...) because I could use it at every race, hilly or not, windy or not, but who am I kidding? I can use a Disc in the windiest of races with no problems. It would take a monsoon to blow me over. These are the "big ticket" items currently on my mind - really, I could just get the wheel covers like I had last year (tip: plastic wheel covers do get brittle and crack over time, mine lasted 2 seasons, but I'm hard on stuff...).

All this listing reminds me that I'll be 44 soon. Yes, Mom, you'll have a 44 year old son! Ha (she hates that...)! I'm pretty sure we are having a Toga party here at the Bigun residence - which will be a first for me. This party will come after my B-Fit Birthday challenge workout of 4 miles in the pool (WTF?), 44 mile bike and 4 mile run. I am sooooo looking forward to that (can you hear the excitement in my voice?)! I may wait until after the party (my B-day is on a Monday) in the hopes of maybe using my new NANO et-al in it's inaugural workout.

If you get that Aqua cell, let me know if it fits your old bracket. I've been wondering that myself.
