Er, I’ve missed last Sunday’s long run. It was supposed to be 11 miles. I missed it because of a severe case of heartburn. I just about died when I got up at 3am, trying to appease my torso area. Fast forward to today. There are only 3 more days left until the Surf City Half Marathon.
My original goal was to run it under 3 hours.
After realizing that I’m a wuss when it came to cold weather/rain training, I changed it back to “run it in 3:15.”
Seeing that my training has been pretty pathetic, I’ve decided my goal for this race are:
- finish the race
- run it under 3:15
- don’t die
- don’t cry
- don’t give up
- if I start to die, run it under 3:45
I’m feeling some fear or anxiety about this race. It’s so close, and yet it seems so surreal. I haven’t prepped the way I did for Long Beach (my first half). The only thing I can do is stay positive.
Dear baby Jesus, please help me stay the course and stay focused on Sunday. I have a feeling it’s going to be a tough race.
