Not sure what to say! I already am having sleepless nights, not good! I just can't stop thinking about what I will wear, will it be the right gear, what to eat, will I have to make a bathroom break, will I get lost in the crowd, will I trip and fall, will someone push me down at the start line, will I go too fast, will I go too slow, will I get a side ache, will it rain, will there be sunshine, will I be hot, will I be cold, will my friends do ok, will my husband find me, will I be able to walk, will I be able to run, will I forget somthing, should I wear my new shoes, wear the old ones, will I sleep in, will I get sleep, will I get over emotional, will I not care..............
This list looks a little bit silly I know, but I am being super honest about what I am thinking at night. I know the answer to most of these questions, but of course I still have been asking myself every night.... in the middle of the night. I am for the most part, just ready to get out there and enjoy the experience. But I do love support, so please send me any advise for a FIRST TIMER!!!
I splurged last night and bought myself a gift for doing all of the training, and assuming I will finish the race on Saturday. I bought plane tickets for the girls and I. We are leaving Sunday, yes the day after the race! Going to a itty bitty little town in Iowa to see my sister in law and her kids. I am excited to leave the make-up bag behind, and go enjoy some heat, and let the girls play with their cousins. Oh and for my recovery runs, they should be nice and flat. I think I might do laps around the town she lives in ( yes it is that small) so that will be fun, I will be sure and take some pictures.
Only 4 more days!!! SO weird, I think this is the first time I have worked this long towards somthing, I kind of will be sad when the day comes and goes! Do you ever feel that way? I am glad to have another race schedualed for 3 months away, so I don't stop. Again advise people.... What kind of a training plan do I follow next???
Alrighty me official goal time is 2hr 15 min. I did my other 13.1 mile run in 2 hr 25 min. I think this is reasonable, I am excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
