In preparation for Sunday, I started my carb loading last night!
Happy Friday everyone! I can’t believe the time is near…eek! I am so friggin nervous right now-2 days to go!
Here is the thing….we set goals for ourselves…very good…. We meet them-we’re ecstatic right?!! We don’t-who really cares???
I know the run blog world won’t care and will still be as encouraging as ever! So why do I feel the pressure?? Is it from myself??
The Answer is yes! And I know y’all can relate. We each know what we are capable of and want to do the best that we possible can. There are things out of our control that hold us back and those can be the things that stress us out and make us feel that we can’t accomplish what we want to. When I did my first half marathon, I had put in a lot of training and I was pretty confident going into the race that I would meet my goal. I know going into this race I am not as trained and prepared as I thought I would be. A few things have held me back from getting in the training that I was planning on (bad hamstring being one of them) but such is life and life must go on.
Sooo…. My goals for Sunday’s Marathon are:
To go into the race with the mind set that I can do it..
To do my best…
To be happy with the outcome!
I want to enjoy the sense of accomplishment when I am done because I did it!
Plain and simple! When I first started running it was because I really enjoyed it. I don’t want to lose the joy of running!
One last thing…..I might be a lil thirsty when I am done…
Monday was my sister’s birthday so we had a lil party for her!
My 3 sister’s and I went out for some appy’s!
Sang a lil birthday song…
Then we went for a couple martinis after….
Yes, carb loading like a champ...actually started on Monday!!
Have a great weekend everyone!
What are your weekend plans??
Any birthdays this weekend???
