The reality of time is that we all have the same amount! Yet, it is still NOT enough! I am sure the majority of you would agree that life is busy and it is extremely hard to fit everything in! This is the conversation I had with my husband last night as he tried to get out of running the race we have scheduled for this morning! He has been swamped at work and putting in long hours....therefore he has missed most of his runs this week! It really does not matter what the situation is...you have to make time to run, and you have to know that running is forgiving! It will wait for you to get through stressful moments of life! It is so easy to feel that if we miss a work out or two or three that we have ruined our whole schedule. We will Never be ready for the race! NOT TRUE! I believe the stress of missing the workout is the only damaging factor. You have to have confidence in what your doing...and have faith in the fact that previous training will cover you in time of absence!
So with that said...today is my first race....READY or NOT!
I hope he runs with me....but regardless, I am going to go and do the best I can!
It is natural to feel unprepared...which is what keeps popping into my head. I have an advantage here...I can do no wrong. This is my first race since my baby. So I have not ran a race in over two years. I just need a time...and then to be happy with it! I mean come on...slower is better....than I have room for improvement!
I don't know why I post my goals on here...I think it is to get over the fact that I am afraid of failure. But is it truly failure to try and run 40 min. and then to run 45? I don't think so! But it feels like it!
There you have it....I am hoping to run 40min. ....it is a 5 mile trail run!
