Holy crap I am so beyond excited! Race week is finally here!
After seemingly endless early mornings, insanely long runs and many chilly ice baths, it’s time to celebrate all my hard work with a 26.2 mile victory lap around the city.
I can’t wait!
I’ve been obsessively reviewing the course map, stalking Sunday’s weather report and trying to decide which pair of socks I want to race in. Seriously, that’s a big decision in my life right now. Blisters aren’t fun.
And in really good news, my appetite is almost back to normal. I’m still extremely turned off by a few things, like chicken, but I can stomach a lot of normal foods, like pasta and soup and cheese and Starbucks pumpkin bread. I’ve been eating quite a bit of that lately.
I mean it’s race week. Time to eat all the carbs!
My plan for the week to ensure I have the best race possible is to get to bed early to bank plenty of sleep, make sure I’m drinking a ton of water and eating plenty of food to top off those glycogen stores. I also plan to do a few short runs this week to make sure my legs are fresh and ready to go.
Six days and counting!
