I am one week away from my next 50K. One week of taper down, one to go. I’m excited as hell about the race and hungrier than a pregnant panda. Confidence is high going into it. I’ve put in a lot of extra strength training in addition to a good amount of miles, which I feel has made a huge difference in my running. Lately, I’ve seen PRs in the 5k, half marathon and marathon. Alcohol has been cut out for the last few weeks, so I’m not fighting a slight headache on weekend mornings just from the couple of pints I had the night before. My main focus now is to get plenty of sleep and to stay motivated.
This will only be my third go at this distance. But I feel really comfortable that covering the distance will be easier than the last two. So now I want to go for a time. I had a goal time in mind and I asked my coach what he thought I could do. I didn’t tell him my time I was thinking. Even with high confidence in my abilities, I guess I wanted reassurance. The time he told me was exactly what I had in mind. So I think I have a good shot at hitting my time I want. But we’ll see what happens
Hoping for a great race next weekend!
