FEELINGS: I still have so many feelings about what happened on Monday, but find that I'm not able to state them eloquently. So I won't even try. But believe me, it's been heavy on my mind all week.
FAILURES: My plan to get up early and run on Mon & Wed before work was only a partial success. Monday went well. But things fell apart on Wednesday. It wasn't my fault though! Husband was having trouble sleeping and decided to turn off the alarm in the bedroom and sleep on the couch with an alarm set on his mobile device. He intended to come in and set the alarm for me in the morning, but forgot. Most of the time I end up waking up before the alarm anyway, but not yesterday. I ended up oversleeping. Oh well.
FEARS: I am so not prepared for the 10K on Saturday! At this point, I'm afraid it will end up being a personal worst. Why? Well, In addition to not being in 10K racing shape, I have a concern that my knee will act up and I'll end up needing to walk a sizable portion since this course is entirely road running. Sigh. In the grand scheme of things, I realize that how fast or slow I cover the 10K distance on Saturday isn't important. But right now that doesn't seem to stop me from fretting over it.
I have to step back and stop reading and watching about it, I had a nightmare about it last night. Such a sad tragic eventReplyDelete
I hate oversleeping. At least you have someone to blame it on!ReplyDelete
I understand where you are coming from, but remember....getting up and actually doing the 10K trumps not doing it at all, no matter how fast or slow! :0) Have a great time!ReplyDelete
I rarely oversleep and if I do I tell myself it happened because I needed the sleep. Go and enjoy the 10km. Just stay comfortable and just do it to finish it.ReplyDelete
I couldn't watch anymore. It was too much.ReplyDelete
