Nordic Skiing race 1:15:00 [5] 19.0 km (3:57 / km) +200m 3:45 / km

Skate. Warmed up with 3-4K then brushed out the skis. Got to the line right on time. Went off and used gunda(which felt a little slower than the normal V2 but I caught Huneck(30 seconds in front at start) by the Wall(3K?). Was behind by 3 seconds on Nick and B. Halligan at the top of the Wall. Very slow tempo up the hills on the first lap. At the start of the 2nd lap I went to pass a girl(and I didn't yell... MISTAKE!!!) and she went into me and put my left ski into the woods and I started to fall so I just tried to flip out of it and it kind of worked(lost about 10 seconds), got up and skied the next 2K slowly(lost another 15-20 seconds). By the time I got to the water towers Huneck had caught back up. Going down Snake trail I caught a second wind and started going fast again. Had a much faster tempo going up the Wall and coach told me I was 5 seconds up on Nick at the top of the Wall but I needed to keep going really fast. I went very fast over the rest of the course. As it turns out Nick beat me by 5 seconds and I truly don't think there is anyway that Nick picked up 10 seconds on me in the last bit from the Wall so I'm betting that Coach screwed up the splits. Shit Happens. Cooled down with about 6K(?)
