  2. The supercute Zoot Sports TRIfit Hula Honeys Racesuit goes from the swim to the bike (padded rear) to the run (built-in sports bra). $110; zootsports.com
  3. Giro's Skyla helmet has 20 vents to keep you cool while firmly hugging your head. $38; for info, giro.com

Scheduling Mondays and Fridays as rest days is probably the smartest feature I've ever seen in a training plan. Those are the two days I'm most likely to blow off anyway, so why not change "blow off" into "rest"? So do-able!
