Well that wasn't exactly what I was hoping for!
Fall Series 1. 2 miles on flat nontechnical trail (13:20ish, about what I wanted but probably too fast for what I felt on that day and my lack of higher intensity training), then 0.8mi in the creek, then another 0.8 miles with a few short steep climbs in wet shoes to the finish.
Things fell apart a bit when I started dry heaving right after I got into the creek. That required several minutes of walking to keep things under control. Stomach still felt pretty iffy after I got out of the creek so I didn't run down as many people as I was hoping to. Someone told me I looked deathly pale afterward. Knee felt fine. Legs felt pretty good. Breathing was heavier than I thought it should be for the effort level. Stomach was ridiculous... 93/278OA 10/146F 2/25 F25-29 I was 5th woman into the creek (but only about 20sec behind 1st), 13th woman out, and 10th at the finish from my count. Placed very slightly higher than last year, but I thought I could move up more. I've been flirting with a cold for the past week, so its time to rest and recover.
