4 days

I'm getting super nervous.

My last long run was two and a half weeks ago. What if I can't run further then 10 km??
Everyone at work is coughing. I don't want to get sick!!
My feet have been achy. What if my arthritis flares up??
I skipped my run today!! Because of rain!! I'm a wimpy runner!!

I had two different marathon anxiety dreams last night. One I was late to the race and the other I lost my shoes and had to run in my socks.

At the same time, I'm super pumped. I'm looking forward to the race expo and picking up my race kit. I'm excited about being in the start corrals with a ton of other people. Really excited for the finish line and getting a medal. Its the in between start line and finish line that's more of an unknown.

  1. Taper Madness has set in for sure. Best advice for you is to relax as much as possible and enjoy the rest. Taper works, trust it.

    Use the time for mental prep. plan your race,set up any music you will use and watch the diet.

    You will do well, trust you training , believe in yourself and you will conquer.
