Troll Cup and Jr. Nationals. Green Y course. 4.8 km/215 m climb/18.7 min/km
Not a glorious day. The navigation was fine, but just so slow. Not that I was surprised since I've done next to no training this year and Mt. Tom is steep. We never got a straight uphill leg like I was expecting...maybe tomorrow. Phil, the course setter, was at dinner with us yesterday and he asked what course I was running. When I told him Green Y, he grimaced and let out a small cry under his breath. He said, "I made that a tough one. I think it's worse on Day 2." Yay!
I did have a bit of an injury today, too. On the way to #3, I fell...one of those falls where you do down very quickly. I didn't have much time to get my hands out to brace myself and somehow my head whiplashed back and forth. I lay there for a few seconds, thinking "That didn't feel right." I got up slowly and felt a little fuzzy headed. For pretty much the rest of the course, I didn't feel right, and by the time I finished, I had a raging headache, but just in the front part of my head. I didn't start feeling "normal" again until partway through the Board meeting, and this evening I feel fine. Hopefully there won't be any residual effects.
I might try to drop to Brown tomorrow.
