Today is the Leprechaun Chase 10k and I have to admit, I’m a little nervous. I think it’s because I don’t want to be last. But then again, I don’t really care because I know I’ll be having fun and no one else really cares who’s last. But still, I didn’t sleep very well last night thinking about that and several things I needed to get done before the race.
I got most of the things done that I needed to except do a walk on the treadmill. I was planning to do a two mile walk, but was afraid I wouldn’t be able to help myself and start running and I know I need to save my legs for the race. They’re a bit sore from the running I’ve done this week to get to my goal of 15 miles for the week.
My mileage for this past week:
Mon. – 2 miles
Tue. – 4.04 (my long run!) the first time without walk breaks.
Thu. – 3.10
*Sat. – 6.20 (after today’s race)
Tot. – 15.34 miles
I feel awesome about this! Me, running over 15 miles in a week! I never would have thought it possible.
Well, I better get going. I have a few more things to do before meeting my daughter to carpool to the race at 1:00. Packet pickup is at 2:00 and the race director advises everyone get there early because the race starts promptly at 4:00. I’ll let you know how I did.
Wish me Luck!
