I spent a good hour stretching in prep for the race. Unfortunately, I stretched in the sauna too long and as I walked away from the sauna and toward a bench, I passed out on the pool deck, badly bruising my hip, elbow and head. I was very worried about how this might affect my race. I went home, iced it, took Ibuprofen, and fell asleep the whole day! Also, I had a bad headache. I'm suspecting it may have been a very slight concussion. At least I still have teeth.
