it’s race week. i am so nervous and trying, unsuccessfully, to remain calm.
this week, i will rest.
this week, i will only run two easy runs, and a shakeout the day before the race.
this week i will eat a normal meal for dinner
this week i will drink a gallon of water a day
this week i will sleep
i am bad at all of the above.
this weekend i had my last longish run (10 mi) which i ran with my friend Jen. It flew by like nothing; i remember before the Paris marathon being worried that any double digit run still felt ominous. i know i’ve come a long way. my nerves are here, but i have put in a really great training effort and i’m trying very hard to remind myself of that.
everything’s ready to go
oatmeal/chia seeds/protein powder
new shirt with a pocket just big enough for my gels***
info for bib pickup
***i have been on the hunt for this perfect race shirt for nearly a year
i can’t believe this week is here
