Bear Creek Lake State Park, red course. Goal was to run hard and navigate well, which I guess is always the goal. Upon going to 1 I realized I forgot to get a clue sheet to put in my arm band, not a big deal. Everything was perfect through 6, crossing the stream to 7 was a challenge as the bank kept collapsing as I tried to get out of the stream, I twisted my ankle slightly getting close to 7, so I slowed a bit to let it recover. Halfway to 8, things were back to normal so I put on full steam again until along the road when the same (right) ankle completely turned. I face planted and cut up my hands and rolled around on the ground for a bit, then sat on a post while I saw stars and thought I was going to vomit. The stars and nausea went away after a few minutes and figured I better figure out a way to get back to the start. I tried flagging down a car, but they were having none of it. I could see the main building to the NW and figured I should just limp there, which I did. Got there and asked the women behind the desk for a ride back to the start, a pair of rangers showed up in about 10 minutes and gave me a ride back. AP said I was over 4 minutes in the lead after 8 of 22 controls, maybe I shouldn't be so focused on speed if it leads to ankle injuries. This injury was certainly bad and swelled up very large very quickly, but I don't think it was quite as bad as the RMOF sprain (same ankle) in 2016.

Around campus, legs felt heavy from yesterday. They weren't really sore though.

Running club. 5x5min. I knew this was going to be a hard workout especially with only 1 min rest. Goal was to stay at 6min pace. Watch is about 5-6 sec slow per mile pace because ground splits were always very close to 6min pace, except the last one. Watch paces were 6:05, 06, 06, 03, 24. I died on the last one. The Urologist was behind a bit on the first 3, then on the 4th he picked it up and I stayed right with him, but I knew the 5 was going to be questionable, he kept at the 6min pace and I died after a lap, had some cramps, but mostly my fitness wasn't up to the workout yet.
