Phil's Green course from Sunday. I had an advantage in that I had a target time (59+), and I had memorized Phil's splits at #'s 3, 7, and 10 so I would have a sense of how things were going.
Had my share of problems. Missed #1, ran too far up the road and came in from behind. Missed #2, went to the wrong cliff, the one to the south. Looked at my watch at 3, a little over a minute behind.
#3 was OK, but on the way to 4 I got a stick in my left eye. Couldn't tell if my contact was still in or not. Blinked several times and then it exited the eye but hung up on my lashes. Took several attempts but got it back in, you really just have to jam it back in. Two minutes elapsed, but at least I had distance vision again.
4-5-6 OK then quick down to 7, hmm, not as far back as I feared, maybe 1:15.
8-9-10 were OK though felt slow, but it's Mt. Tom, what do you expect. And the time at 10 was good, a minute up. Rest should have been easy except I botched 12, cut through the green but turned left instead of right.
Nice course, didn't seem overly hilly. A little cooler than Sunday. Only noticed the bugs when I stopped for my contact, no big deal. And my time was better than expected, given not my preferred three days of rest. :-)
