WCOC A-Meet Day 1

Kat and I showed up early to help PG set up the start and then pre-ran the WRE courses. Not much of a warm-up, but somehow as soon as I flipped over the map and started, I felt great and in racing mode. It felt like I flew through the first loop, the first four controls sitting exactly where I expected them to. Then I took a bad direction crossing the big trail going to 5, corrected, but not enough and ended up missing low and having to come back up. Chose the upper route to 6 since it was shorter and had a nice approach. Nailed it. Went straight to 7, in control the whole way, feeling good. Straight again to 8, but probably should have run on the trail some more, as the woods were pretty scrappy there. No problems scrambling back up to 9 and then on the line the whole way to 10, still feeling great. Was in control to 11, but about 3/4ths of the way there, I suddenly told myself that I should be going to 13 first. Spiked 13 from where I was and realized what I had done. Cursed myself and went to 11, losing a minute in the process. Just fine through 12,13,14 (I love this part of Ansonia!), then lose 18 seconds and the lead to a flying Ross on 15 without making a mistake. No problems to 16 and the finish. Mostly very happy with myself after the run, as it's the best I had felt physically for a whole course in a very long time. Then went to help out at the start and was glad to be sheltered from the rain when the worst of the storm came.

Spent the evening glued to the computer watching Tiomila coverage and rooting for Linné. It was a rollercoaster, as they started very well on leg 1, then lost time at the beginning of 2 and dropped off the lead pack. Tomas lot a few more minutes during the long night, and Höij went out 6.30 down on the 4th leg. All looked hopeless, but the top teams kept losing time, and Höij, Jan, Liutas (a reserve who had to jump in for Ulf), and Albin had amazing runs to bring Linné into the lead pack after 7 legs. I was nearly jumping up and down on the chair when I saw Albin run in, 17 seconds off the lead. Loefaas ran really well on 8 and exchanged 3rd, 1:22 down on the lead. In the end, Linné finished 5th, which is probably about where they belong, but them staying in the thick of things through the whole relay certainly made my night!
6 PM

Running 1:00:00 [2] 7.33 mi (8:11 / mi) +106m 7:50 / mi
shoes: Blue Asics 2009

At East Rock in the early evening. Planned to rollerski, but ran out of time after taking an afternoon nap. Not very energetic, just wanted to get out. If I had stayed at West Point and run the long, I am guessing I would have struggled.
