I cannot express how excited and terrified I am for my race. I told someone about it yesterday, and they asked me if I was going to win... Um..... sure, yeah, I'm going to win.
Winning and finishing is that same thing right?
As long as I finish (conscious) I'll consider that a win.
I was planning on getting my legs used to the movement by walking every day this week. But the midwest weather hasn't been cooperating. Rain, hail, or snow every day this week. It's got me bummed, stressed, and overwhelmed. And has me in Type-A, OCD, planner, worrier, freak-out mode.
There are 22 weeks from Easter Sunday to race day. Before registering I did some research and figured it would take about 20 weeks to safely train, at a level I thought was doable. And after some serious down and dirty research, I have devised a strategy.
Are you bored yet? I am so overwhelmed now. Do you know how long 19 weeks is? Oy! I am almost set to go! I've got 3 running related books in my to-read pile, compression sleeves for my shin splints, and next week I want to go for a shoe fitting and gait analysis! I am trying to be as prepared as possible for this! I want to avoid, injury, and unnecessary pain as much as possible! So I need your help!
