Paddle race (Santa Barbara Rig Run) 53:58 intensity: (1:47 @1) + (17:04 @2) + (34:25 @3) + (42 @4) 4.72 mi (11:26 / mi)
ahr:150 max:164

Rig Run outrigger race in Santa Barbara. It was our first open water race and I planned to do a lot of paddling and less steering, but the conditions proved otherwise. We were rocking it. We were in 4th place overall for the women and winning our division at about the 60% mark of the race. We were headed toward shore, and due to the angle of the coast in Santa Barbara, the waves were coming from our left, which is where the ama is. This also makes the boat want to veer to the left, which means steering on the right, which was hectic. At one point, the ama started lifting, and I leaned left while yelling at the team to lean left, but it was too late... we went over. We lost just under 3 minutes recovering, which was enough to drop us to 6th in our division (out of 9) and way back out of contention. BUT, at least we know what we can do. We'll be hungry for it next race. I'm proud of the team for keeping our heads together and getting the boat going again relatively fast.

Also, we have two weeks to practice before the next race, and I'm hoping for mild winds so we can actually safely go out in the open ocean to practice being in the swells. Next time... it's ours.

Hiked Franklin trail with Agi, Tim, and Jenny. Really great trail just down the road from work. It's a great workout with lots of climbing. Jenny led the way on the way up and really pushed the pace for hiking. It was good. We were all surprised at how green it was and different from hiking in Ventura, which is only 15 miles to the south. Definitely have to come back and start just a little earlier so we can do the whole trail. We needed about 30 minutes more of light today (or maybe headlamps) to do the whole thing.

Blah, not feeling it today. Got out there and after 5 minutes decided to bag it and just do some walking. Maybe I have learned something.

Forgot to stop the watch at the end.

Our first day in the open ocean as a novice team! It went well. Saturday is our first open ocean race, so we needed to get some time out there today to practice. Super excited for our team. I think we're going to be great and just continue to move up. :-D

Road Bike 1:41:18 [3] 25.91 mi (15.3 mph) +557ft
ahr:153 max:175

Rode to Santa Barbara to pick up my car at the zoo where I left it last night after the company party when I got a ride back home. It was a really nice route and even the roads had great shoulders and felt really safe.
Some headwind today for maybe half the ride. I passed 11 other cyclists and got passed by 0, so that made me happy. At one point, I was pushing hard to catch this guy on a mountain bike who didn't really seem to be working that hard. I finally caught him and realized he was on an e-bike. He passed me back shortly thereafter, but I didn't count him since he was totally cheating.
