Sooo…. about that race today. Yikes. I woke up this morning and I just did not feel excited, nervous, anxious, all of the things I usually feel before a race that get me pumped up. I slept on the way to the race and didn’t even play my good luck songs. I was just ‘off’. It showed during the 5k today. I just didn’t have the urge to dig deep, or push myself to move it. I ran an 18:20 time. 30 seconds SLOWER than last months’ race. Oh well, it just wasn’t my day. I also ran 80 miles this week, so I think I was tired. But, I have to move forward and focus on AFC. Like my BF Ter reminded me, lucky I was feeling ‘off’ today and not next Sunday when it really matters! (Well, I am hoping I am not ‘off’ next Sunday too) Now I get to taper for AFC. I will still run 64 miles this week, but the drop in mileage will hopefully freshen those legs up!
