Just a short ditty

I only have six days (!!!) until my 10K, so I am taking it easy this week. I plan to run one more day to give my legs time to rest before the race.

Today was a short run. Well, short compared with what I've been doing lately. I think I might do a bike workout tomorrow and then the last run Wednesday. I'm not sure if I'll do anything on Thursday, and I think Friday and Saturday will be rest days.

I have been having weird dreams about the race already. Nothing like having the worrier in me come out when I'm asleep. In one dream, I stopped about three miles in, went into some building, sat down and talked to some folks, then went back out and ran another mile to the finish line. I guess I cheated, LOL! And instead of medals (which each finisher of this 10K receives), they ended up giving me a little piggy bank with my name on it. Strange......

I had another race dream, but in that one I didn't even finish. I don't remember the details, but I woke up a little freaked out.

I hope the race goes off smoother than it does in my dreams!

Today's stats:
Distance: 2.5 miles
Time: 29:23
Pace: 11:46 minute/mile

Performance anxiety causes some pretty funny dreams.

A little anxiety is understandable ... but all those fears will disappear as soon as you cross the start line. Just stay out of building during the race and you'll do great.
