This is happening tomorrow…Yay! If the weather is like today (mid 70’s) it will be great. We went to pick up the bib number (very easy!) after “meet your teacher day” at school. I can’t believe school starts Monday! It was pleasantly cool in the shade, with a nice ocean breeze…nice weather for a race!
These are some of the views I will see during the race tomorrow…
Time to set some goals. I hope to finish in under 49:31–That was my time from the 10k a couple of weeks ago. I had a hard time at that race mentally. I am hoping to be better prepared with my mental game, but I am concerned about tired legs. I am feeling fatigued from a 15 mile run Sunday, and a track workout Tuesday (in between on Monday and Wednesday were easy 4 mile shake out runs). I guess that is the beast of marathon training! It is also a 6pm start–that should complicate my already in place fueling trouble! But, live and learn! Here I am overcomplicating things, and letting self-doubt limit my goals…
I have been staring at this cursor “flashing”, wondering if I should raise the time…Ugh. I am leaving it. Suck it up, buttercup!
Well tomorrow…we will see. Have a good one!
Do you have trouble setting race goals?
Yep! I do.
