Swimming in Heaven
Okay, I know that I need to finish my "novel" recap of Ironman Oceanside. I'm almost finished. But I just had to write about my newest training tool. When we were at Oceanside we ran into a couple of guys from H2O Audio. They were about to release their newest product, the iSH2 waterproof headset for the iPod shuffle. So of course I ordered one for me and one for Tri-Rich the first opportunity I had. It is awesome. Anyone that swims, I highly recommend it. I know that there is a swim MP3 player out there that works on bone conduction. I've never tried it so I really can't compare. All I know is mine ROCKS! Lap swimming will never be the same. My hour in the pool tonight was over before I knew it. I probably need to do a better job in selecting the proper music as I noticed that I would swim a bit too fast with some of the songs I was listening to. Anyhow, there you have it. Now if only a new Tri bike could be as easy and cheap. Oh, one thing to note, when I swim I remove the plastic neckband and clip it directly to my swim goggles. Cool, eh?
