slipped and fell on the way to 1, ran by it. on the way to 3 I started to feel strange, could not breath so well and pain in the middle of my back. kept going, but my mind was busy trying to resolve the issue.
5 was in the wrong place. I thought it was 6 that was misplaced so could not figure out what I did wrong. Alex came along and reassured me it was 5 in the wrong place and then moved it down the hill to the correct charcoal terrace.
still pain in my back but kept chasing Alex. tried to give her something to think about. always good mental training.
decided to splitat 11. she went left and I deliberately went straight/right. crested the hill OK, but screwed up the approach from a wrong knoll at the trail. lost a minute maybe. continued to 13, but decided to call it quits on the way to 14 when I came across a nice quiet spot with a great view of the lake. sat for about 15 minutes trying to figure out what the pain was from. it was not until talking to Balter that I realized that I did in fact fall earlier. not sure how I forgot that. I must have torqued my back when I slipped on a rock on a side slope. totally took me down real quick. and thanks to Bernie and Kpop for asking questions and prodding me.
