New Wetsuit Tip

Seriously, I thought I knew everything there was about putting on a wetsuit....

But yesterday I learned the COOLEST trick of all!!!!

My wetsuit was still damp from the race, and I was having a hard time putting it on. A woman offered to help me get it on by blowing through my wetsuit at my ankle. She told me to lie down on this bench and she would blow.....

I swear my eyes boggled out incredulously and declined. She said, never mind, I'll help you get your arms in when you come outside. (We were in the women's change room.)

I sort of forgot about it, but when I emerged from the change room she was right there eager to help. Now here is the totally crazy part...

She pulled back my wetsuit from my wrist a little bit, like she was going to blow up a balloon. And then she blew. And holy crap, that little puff inflated my wetsuit with a big air pocket and I could easily pull up my wetsuit!!

I'm a convert!! I was so excited about this new discovery I quickly started babbling to everyone in my immediate vicinity. Hee-hee!!!

So awesome!! :) :)

Did you enjoy your first blow job? Obviously, you were telling everyone! Miss you babe! Get home to mike with your marriage saver blanket - he misses you!!

You wouldn't see me turning down a blow job. I knew triathlons had strippers, but blow job specialists? Didn't know that.

Just when I thought I was crazy for training in this stupid wind and stupid highway traffic, I found someone else as crazy as myself! I live/train in Sparwood and just found your awesome blog. I just started racing triathlons last year and LOVE it. If you ever want someone to train with that would be awesome. You rock. And you're hilarious too :)

Hey Suzanne!! I can't believe there is another triathlete in these parts!! YAHOO!!!!!!!!!!!!

I will totally take you up on your offer -- I am in Victoria now for little while longer, but when I get back we should totally hook up!

Here's my email:

toblyobly@yahoo.com

Drop me a line with your phone #, and we can arrange something! We have an open air in the pool on the Pass, and the shoulders are much bigger and smoother over on the AB side. I could show a great ride with little traffic and a few hills. :) :)

LOL Keith, wow

Interesting tip, thanks for sharing.

Amy said...

Well see? We're all learning something too. Good to know, thanks!

Sparfy said...

hmm... this brings up all sorts of possibilities!


and... i ( in my very noob way ) learned that you keep your socks on to put the suit on and it slides over your feet really happy.

do you wash out your suit after an outside swim? wondering if i should be cloroxing it or pouring orange juice on it or something...

:-)

Hey Sparfy!

I use a plastic shopping bag to put my arms and feet in...

I just rinse it out in cool water in the tub afterward. Then turn it inside out (or right side out Hee-hee) and rinse again. I drape it over the shower rod to dry.

You don't need Clorox or OJ, the pee already did the trick. ;) Oh yeah, YOU KNOW I am serious, baby.
