Like normal, with this being the week of a “big race,” I am completely doubting myself and looking back at places where I didn’t do as much as I wanted. My biggest frustration is that I haven’t done a 14 mile run. I had planned to Feb. 6 but the throw up bug derailed that. The next weekend, I was just stupid and didn’t (I did opt to run 10 miles HARD instead and ran a “PR” so it wasn’t a waste by any means). So I am frustrated with myself. And then the doubts creep in … am I really in good shape? Can I really run a half marathon faster than I did in November?
I have looked back over my running log so many times in the past few days. Yes, I am in shape. Yes, I am running better than I have in years.
So here’s to putting the doubts out of my mind, enjoying a week of taper (easier running to be rested for a big race) and to getting EXCITED about a big race on Saturday!!!!
