Made a necessary trip to the bike shop a few days ago. My fuel cupbards were bare....completely out of energy bars and gels. Rather than come home with the $5500 new toy I really wanted (sometimes I swear the bike shop is just torture), I came home with a bunch of Hammer fuels and these babies. (TYR Velocity mettalized.)
Every time I swim I get out of the pool and think "I really need some new goggles." But its not enough of a need to make a special trip, and well...I keep forgetting, until I swim again. And what fun would swimming be without leaking, foggy goggles, really?
Don't they look tough? I think they are guaranteed to make me faster and fearless in the open water, though I looked and couldn't find that in writing anywhere on the box. What they did claim to be is UV protective and fog-free. Which made me laugh, because a) all goggles say they are fog free and I have yet to find a pair that actually are, and b) like I need UV protection for all my pool swimming. Any sunshine and open water I see is on race day and all races seem to happen at the sun-barely-over-the-horizon hour.
But I have to say....they were completely fog free for my entire workout. Whole new experience being able to actually see what's around you in the pool. And not always a pleasant one. Sometimes its best not to know whats floating by you.
