I vaguely remember that time too. It must have happened or I wouldn't be sitting here with three sleeps to go before I line up at the starting line of the Oasis Zoo Run 10k.
|What I'm running for!|
I just finished making my playlist for the run (I think) and it's terrifying me! The playlist is TWICE as long as my 5k playlists. There is so much time to fill in and so much music to get through. And I have no idea how things are going to go so I'm not sure exactly where to place my "power songs" along the way. I finished a training run of 10k in about 1:10 and hope to finish in less than 1:20. I made my ideal playlist about 1:15 and have enough buffer music to get me to almost 2:00. Will it be enough? I just don't know right now.
I can't lie, I'm starting to freak out a bit (as if you couldn't tell from the above). I know I can do this. I know I have it in me. I know I can set goals for this race and I can meet them. I know I will finish this race upright - even better than upright. But right now I can't think about goals or the race because it's just plain scary!
How do you feel before you tackle a new distance or challenge?
What do you do to calm mind down and get it done?
