5K Tomorrow

Tonight, or more specifically tomorrow, I work from midnight - 5.

Then I get ready for the race.

The weather forecast I looked at shows the temperature to be below 80 at race time which is exciting.

The physical part of training is done. If you can call it training.

Well, yes, it has been training. There have been some hard aspects to it.

I've run some tough hills. I'm not sure just how out-of-shape I am but I'm in much better shape than I was a month ago.

I'm not quite sure how to approach my shift tonight as far as what to eat and when.

What I know is I'll probably drink a fair amount of water and maybe stretch a bit. No matter how crazy it gets, I'm gone at 5 a.m.

I'll get to the course soon enough stretch and get a number on my singlet.

I'll be wearing a singlet to stay cool and hopefully run better and feel like I'm racing.

As I was saying, the physical part of the training is over. Now it's time to visualize, to relax and to get mentally ready.

I will definitely be pushing myself as hard as I can.
