Using An App To Help Me Stay On Path

Hello there you blank beautiful screen. It's been awhile. I took a little time last week to just step back, disconnect, and honestly breathe. I felt myself needing a breather and a moment to adjust to going back to work (part-time), Lil Man going to school full time, soccer and running for him, and just daily life. You know what I mean.

My typical morning is starting to consist of some type of early morning workout, rushing home to get lunches made, making sure I'm back in time so hubby can get to work, grabbing a quick shower, getting Lil Man to the bus stop, finally getting breakfast for me, packing my work bag, getting laundry started, cleaning up the kitchen, taking the dogs in and out and in and out...  and if possible I try to get caught up on email/social media before I head into work.

But I'm back and feeling a little more like I have things under control. I think I'm finding

Nervous

I know that a lot of people deal with nerves before a marathon. I feel very unprepared (which I know is also normal). But I also know that missing some key runs probably really does leave me unprepared.

I did a hilly 12 miles yesterday. It was harder than I had hoped. I think partly was that I'm just really tired of running in the cold wind! And my stomach wasn't playing too nice. I'm officially on the 'taper' of the training plan. I have a couple of short runs this week, an 8 miler this weekend, a couple of short runs the following week, and then it's race time.

I think I might puke. I keep telling myself that this race has NO time limit. I can do this. Hydrate, refuel, walk as needed. Just keep moving forward. Don't over think it. Have fun! But right now, I'm just really nervous!

  1. There's porta potties available and in an emergency, just think puke is biodegradable, road side comfort creatures :)
    Now, open a can of whoop ass, enjoy the race and hydrate at all the water stations.
