    alright a$$ kicker 49.34 mi 03:55 12.6mph pace

    Was supposed to be a 3 hour ride, so I was going to do 40 miles (to the Cardiff Kook and back). When we got up to the Kook, my friend I was biking with suggested we go another 5 miles, to make it ... read more

    great drills 1900 yd

    Back in the pool. 38 lap swim. Had to cut it short by 500 yards (it was supposed to be 2400) but I had time constraints. 1900 is better than nothing. Garmin is off, I found this "drill mode&... read more

    great soul filling 2.56 mi 00:30 11:43 pace

    I haven't run since last Thursday due to 6 days of migraine. Still have a slight one but am feeling much better. Decided to go for 30 minutes after dinner. So glad I did. Did my usual 2/:30 r... read more

  5. VELO
    great Lake Miramar 10.23 mi 00:54 11.3mph pace

    2 laps of Lake Miramar with my son. Felt good to be out there (even slow, as I was doing his pace) as I've been having a migraine for days and unable to work out. Still have one but it'... read more

    great Climbing Torrey 33.76 mi 02:42 12.5mph pace

    good Stand Up Paddle 1.98 mi 01:44 52:31 pace

    SUP in Mission Bay with my 11 year old. Steena I don't know how you do it. It took forever to get back...and a slight current kept making us drift....on the way back my son kept drifting away... read more

  8. RUN
    great out and back 3.1 mi 00:36 11:37 pace

    Amazing run. Warm and humid but felt great. Stuck to my ratio. Each mile got progressively a bit faster. I needed this!

  9. swim
    great 1500 yd 00:41 47:34 pace

    30 lap swim. Time may not be accurate, as 100 yards were with a kickboard and my Garmin didn't measure the laps, just the time...not sure if that time is counted toward my swim time or rest t... read more

  10. RUN
    great out-and-back 2.56 mi 00:30 11:43 pace

    Great run. Speed coming back a tiny bit. Did my 2 minute run/30 second walk ratio. Even negative split by 52 seconds so that was cool. Will try to swim later.

  11. RUN
    good Thousand Oaks 3.25 mi 00:40 12:18 pace

    Wow. Away from home, getting my son from camp today (he's been gone 3 weeks! ). Very muggy outside after the epic Southern California storm yesterday. Still so slow. I feel totally fine afte... read more

  12. RUN
    great 'hood 2.45 mi 00:30 12:14 pace

    Another easy "recovery" run. Went back to my 2 minute run/30 second walk ratio. Ended up negative splitting by 50 seconds. Not pushing anything, still in recovery mode.

  13. My recap of Vineman 70.3 is up. It's a long one.

      I just finished reading your excellent race report! First off, CONGRATULATIONS on your finish and PR! I loved the details you have recorded and really enjoyed it. It definitely makes me want to add Vineman to my race bucket list!
      I'm very proud of you for racing hard and smart and I love how it all paid off for you. Btw, you can definitely do a full IM as well. There's no doubt about that in my mind.

      Wow! What a recap, Sug! Sub-8 is so good! I am so happy for you! For the swim, it's hard to appreciate where to. e, every race being different. On the bike, now you know you need to keep away from cliffs. As for the run, I now have this picture of you w/ a well enhanced front :-)

    great recovery swim 1500 yd

    good Russian River 600 yd

    Not sure if this is accurate. ..I don't think I swam this far, even floating in the river without moving Garmin was adding yards. Nice swim in the Russian River. Had never swam in fresh water... read more

    good Pre-race bike check 1.75 mi 00:09:57 10.6mph pace

    Not really worth logging this, but I will. Just a short ride to test out my bike to make sure it survived the car ride. It's been raining and the ground was wet with lots of debris. Took it v... read more
