5 days, 10 hours
I'm scared. I've never been this scared in my entire life and that includes sitting in a hospital after a car accident, multiple grad school interviews and a major job interview. It outstrips my anxiety over buying a house. I wasn't half as freaked out as I am now when I ran my first half marathon.
A FULL! I'm going to do a full in 5 days, 10 hours. I shouldwill be finished in 5 days, 14 hours and 40 minutes +/- 20 (probably +). I ran a short 8 miles on Saturday and I just did not feel good about it. My shins hurt and I walked more then I should have. I don't feel ready! But do you ever? Probably not. I just have to remember I've done a couple 20 mile runs. I only need to add 6 more. And, the only pressure to finish it at a certain time is from me. No matter what time I finish, it will automatically be a PR. I just need to finish and not collapse at the end.
That's it. I can't think about this anymore! Where's my Xanax?
