2 days to go till my biggest race ever! I am super excited but also SUPER nervous!!!
So many “firsts” this Sunday…
- First 10km race
- First trail run
- First time racing in colder weather….-1 Celsius is predicted for Sunday morning!
- First time racing with Daylight Savings Time…which actually may help as I will get in 1 extra hour of sleep!
- First time racing after eating too much Halloween candy!! -this problem has actually been going on all week and it’s not even trick or treating time yet!
I would have liked to go into this race with a good 9-10 weeks of 10km training behind me but truth be told it’s only been 5 weeks since my last race which was a 5km. I’m pretty sure that I’ll be okay to run 8km without any issues but those last 2km might just do me in! However, even if I crawl my way to the finish line at least I will have finished the race and can say I’ve completed a 10km.
Then I can eat more Halloween candy!!! Bahahahahahahaaaaa 😉
All joking aside, I am really looking forward to accomplishing the goal of running 10km. Once I’ve done it, I can then focus on training to get a PR in a 10km. I am pretty competitive so aiming for a PR always seems to push me to do my best.
However before I go thinking too far ahead to PR’s, I just need to be on my game for Sunday. So in order to be fully rested, I’m not running till the race. I also need to nix the Halloween candy so……no running, no candy…..OMG I will definitely need another form of therapy!
Retail therapy it is!! To the mall I go 🙂
