I tend to get bored quite often during study breaks. My study plan is to do one chapter per day. So after finishing one chapter, I don't move on to the others even though I have free time. Call me rigid, but I'd like to think that I'm giving my brain time to absorb =P
Anyway, I decided to take a drive to look at some tri-suits that I've been wanting to get. My current one is still fairly new, but it's starting to loosen. I've been eyeing this red one by 2xu. Was a bit sceptical about the pockets... thought they might add more drag. But the colour was just TO DIE FOR... it matches my bike. And I guess, the pockets would come in handy when (or if) I attempt a Half Ironman next year.
My first stop was BikeForce Subiaco. It's not my usual store but decided to have a look. My usual store, TotalTriathlon mentioned they were only having sales after the Busselton Half Ironman, which was this weekend.
BikeForce was selling garments for 50% off! But there weren't any of my S sizes left. There was one S size, which is the 2xu elite suit that was going for AUD100 but it was black... so boring. It wouldn't be half as bad if it was blue. Should have visited this store so much earlier.
So I went to next shop nearby, Sports Fever, which had plenty of sizes left but they were going for only 25% off.
I crossed my fingers and sped all the way to TotalTriathlon, hoping that their sales were on and there were sizes left. The store owner mentioned that their sales would only start on Monday. I saw that my red suit in S size going for AUD140 was the only one left... I told him my concerns about it being taken by someone else.
And the nice guy said he'll give me the discount there and then. So I got it for AUD99. It is the same price as the elite one in BikeForce but with a colour like that... I can't complain.
