I’m so ready to crush this half marathon on Saturday. I realize this is a bold statement. But hey- I’ve never been so ready for a race in my life. As I said, I’ve taken a different approach to training and actually worked my butt off to get to this race. I have a goal in mind, and if I can help it, it will be accomplished.
I’ve fartlek-ed, I’ve tempo-ed, I’ve done a long run every weekend. Another results that I was hoping happened too, I PR’ed this past week at a 5k Turkey Trot by 45 seconds, in freezing WINDY weather. New 5k PR 25:47..a nice confidence booster the weekend before the half marathon. Just what I needed to solidify that the hard work paid off.
That being said, IF I don’t get my goal, I may be dissapointed, however, I’m already proud of myself for all that I have done this fall.. and I KNOW that it will happen someday.
For the rest of the week, the plan is to do a few short runs, get the kinks out of my calves that are bugging me and rest and just trust in my training.
Hopefully on Saturday, I show up with some major run-tude.
That’s the plan.
