Penultimate Pre-Race Run

Thursday 5.0 miles/41:59/8:24 average pace

The run was fantastic. The pace felt easy, I felt strong. I did just three strides at the end but I was flying.

I had a little breakdown at the beginning of the run though, because my new GPS took FOREVER to get a signal, and it was freaking freezing outside, and I was regretting purchasing that thing, and since I was so so cold I was re-thinking the whole tights vs. shorts debate, and I just kinda lost it. I cursed a lot, and cried a little and felt a lot better. :) I am feeling kind of anxious today, but I'm just going to try to relax, get some things done, and just chill. Whew.

Anyway, after I got that out of my system, I had a great run. For fun, here's my splits:

8:49, 8:27, 8:22, 8:12, 8:07

Fantastic. Easy. Strong. Freezing. Regret. Crying. Anxious...

Yep, you must be getting ready to run a marathon and it sounds like you completely prepared for it because I think I felt every one of those emotions in every one I have ever done.

Your ready. Go get 'em this weekend.

Good luck!
