My legs are tired. But I have a 10K tomorrow.
I had hoped to try and beat last year's time. Which was an AGPR of
43:14. But, as usual, I overstuffed my calendar and did the Grand Canyon
last weekend, and I am definitely still recovering. The soreness is
pretty much gone now. I did 5.5 on Tuesday and 5 miles last night. And
they felt OK. But just OK. I'm certainly not tapered to race a hard 10K.
I will show up in the morning. And I will tell myself to just go out
conservative and not worry about chasing that 6:59 pace. But I don't
know if that is possible. It's a race! Must! Run! Hard!
I kind of expect to blow up and suffer and die. The course has a nasty
hill at mile 5. Why can't I just run it for fun? 8 minute pace? Enjoy
the festive atmosphere and then run 12 on Sunday for marathon training?
Yes, that's what I'll do....
Not sure if I can do that.
Stupid competitive juices.
