Last Friday of the month already? It’s time to join in for some fun April Runfessions a monthly link up to spill all kinds of running and fitness thoughts. So let’s get right to it.
I Runfess…I am a little nervous about my first tri race of the year this Sunday. I know that I am more than prepared for this sprint tri but I still get so nervous and have to work really hard to push away the “what if” thoughts. I have written out my whole race day plan and hoping that will help me stay focused. This is new for me and I am optimistic it is really going to help.
I Runfess…I sometimes question why I do this to myself. Don’t get me wrong, love the training and the motivation and the discipline that training for a race entails; do not however love the pre race anxiety. Yet, I do keep signing up for them so perhaps it’s like childbirth that I just forget this part?
I Runfess...I am glad I wrote that Race Day Letter to myself Race Day Letter to myself last month to remind me of how I have prepped and how much progress I have made.
I Runfess…I am kind of glad that I do not have a half marathon or longer distance race on my schedule yet for this year. I am enjoying the shorter runs and more cross training right now. I think my body is too and I feel like I am in better shape now. I am sure come August I will be ready to sign up for a longer race again in the fall.
I Runfess…While I have been doing really well with meal planning and eating well balanced meals, I have been having such chocolate cravings lately. Time to do another sugar detox or just let me myself eat chocolate? Serious dilemmas for sure 🙂
Tell me do you make a race day plan to follow? Anything to Runfess?
