With that said, I think I'll be okay tomorrow as for once in my life I listened to my body and have done a lot of cross training with only one run this week which was Tuesday and 3.4 miles. On Wednesday I did 35 minutes of stair climbing, Thursday was 3 miles on the elliptical, Friday 10 miles of cycling plus weight training and today a complete rest day which was hard due to the glorious fall weather we have and all of the Facebook posts I get from fellow trail runners saying "I could have run all day it was so nice", or "fantastic run in the woods with all of the lovely colors of fall". Grrrrrrrrr........HA
Today it was some gentle yoga and a lot of foam rolling. The compression sleeves have been on all day as well as the ankle brace so helping it will help. I would love to tell you I'm nervous but so far, not a hint of the butterflies in the stomach. I feel as if I'm prepared as I will ever be and have done a lot of soul searching the past month of so and realize beating myself up over how slow I am is what causes me to not even try so the only goal I have for tomorrow is to finish the darn thing even if it means coming in dead last. Will post an update hopefully tomorrow with pictures from the race as you know I will be bringing my camera for pictures before and after it.
Take care all.
