A very brief warm up in the quarantine area trying to stay in the shade a lot. It didn't seem like a good idea to wear myself out too much in the sun, but in retrospect I probably should have gone with a normal (much longer) sprint race warmup.

TT Sprint

The good news is that I was way less nervous for this race than I was for the first race of last year's TT. There isn't really bad news, just eh. I was a bit hesitant with my choice for the first control (right and up the stairs) because I wan't to make sure I was reading the levels correctly. This whole two planes thing is tricky. I bounded up the stairs and, well, that wasn't very good because then my legs stiffened up. Definitely should have done more rigorous uphills during my warmup. Am I getting old? I mean, seriously. Ridiculous.

Also went right to 2, which was perhaps suboptimal. Missed the hedge gap going into 3 (took it going out), though fine to 4 and 5. Ali was catching up, already! Six was a long leg and I took the left tunnel and went by the finish. I think that was all right, as Ali (who went way around to the right) punched not too much before I did. Seven was short, then I hesitated while in the tunnel to 8. I though, "oh no, I've passed it!" but actually it was above me and I still had to take the stairs. There I go again with the two planes issue.

Took a left route to 9, which again I think is suboptimal. Fine to 10 (through the tunnel) but I actually went behind the wall for 11 (over the wall to get out) when I really could have just punched over it. Nothing left for 12-finish.

Overall it was okay - no major issues, just some hesitations and questionable as to whether the routes were the best, but nothing terribly obviously poor. Main issue was that I just couldn't run fast. I remembered how hard I was able to go at the BAOC meet last month and I was not able to do that today. I guess that figures based on my recent training (what training?).

Anyway, looking forward to some woods.

Running warm up/down 15:26 intensity: (3 @0) + (10:44 @1) + (4:39 @2) 1.82 km (8:29 / km) +23m 7:59 / km
ahr:146 max:166 shoes: Dorothy (X-Talon 190)

Leisurely cool down with with a crew of hot gals (and Ross).
