Warm-up. Feeling very, very sluggish.

Hälsingekaveln. I ran leg 15 (out of 16) for Linne's second team. This is one of those "breadth" relays, where certain legs have to be run by women, others by juniors or veterans, and so on, with a maximum of 6 H21's per team. My leg was the last open leg, and, along with leg 1, the longest one in the relay. It's also the first non-parallel leg after the previous four legs are run by three runners each, in parallel. This meant that I need for all three of our previous leg runners to finish before I could start.
Warming up, I felt totally dead. No energy, no strength in the legs. This didn't get any better when I started, and my motivation level was pretty low, as I went out alone with no other teams in sight. I sort of sleep-walked through the course, unable to run or concentrate particularly well. Made a few mistakes, but nothing too major. Just couldn't make myself go hard and kept tripping over stuff when I tried. Very frustrating. I came into the finish right after Sofie Johansson anchored our first team to victory, so at least I got to witness the victory pile. (Photo by Johanna Gullberg.)
