I am currently training for my first full marathon. I will be headed to Savannah, GA for the Rock N Roll Series with Team in Training.
My goal: Completion. I have no time goal set, even though I would like to finish in under 6 hours. I laugh thinking about how many hours I will be running and how many meals I would normally eat in that time period.. Yup, I like to eat:)
After last week's (AMAZING) 14 miler I was so scared and dreading 18 miles. But I got up at 4am and headed towards Bayshore Blvfd. for a 5:30am start. For all you non Floridians, it's hot down here.
My biggest mistake this week was talking myself out of it! I did not want to be there for the run, I was hoping the weather would cancel the run. It I would have talked myself into running, I believe it would have made life a lot easier. Getting your head into the game is something I have to learn to do, think positively. That is my goal:)
On Friday night I packed my bags, even made breakfast (I managed to eat half of it, as I am not a morning eater but apparently I need to learn to fuel 'cause I will hit the wall early). I walked out the door and saw it was raining, boy was I annoyed. I passed some lightening on my drive, hydrated as well. When I got to Bayshore it was NOT raining.
