I totally love my running gear, and I've joked that my favorite outfits involve running clothes. Really, what can beat a running skirt, racing shoes, and a good ponytail??!? I've been more consistent with my swimming and feel like I should review a few pieces of swimming gear. After a very good morning swim involving plenty of breaststroke and some freestyle, I thought swimming deserved a blog post.
I have a Splish swimsuit that I love. It fits well, it covers everything up, and it has a fun design. I rate it an A (it would get an A+ but their swimsuits aren't cheap).
I use Tyr goggles. Part of the strap broke, so I have to repair it by tying a knot in the strap. Thus the goggles get a B/B- rating. But the goggles fit well and let me see in the pool. I would NOT be able to swim laps without goggles.
I like doing some kicking practice with fins. The pool provides Finis Zoomers, which work great. I give the fins an A+ and would like to get my own pair of fins at some point!
I do my swimming at Oakland's public pools, and I give them a hearty A- rating. The pools are well maintained, and the staff is friendly. Sometimes lanes get a tad crowded. And the bathrooms are functional but nothing to write home about.
