The 10K is on halloween, my first race EVER!!! I’m starting to get really excited actually. I thought I’d be nervous out of my mind (and really, there is still plenty of time for that) but I’m looking forward to pushing myself for fun instead of for a paycheck. Sound wierd? not if you’re a performer. And Dizzle said he’s coming to watch me, which, though a bit nerve wracking, means a lot. I would never expect someone to come watch me run around in a circle at any time of day, but this race is at 7am. thats like 4 hours before performers wake up normally. But knowing he’s going to be there is already putting a little pep in my step.
As for training, I wanted to do a trial run, but I haven’t run more then just over 5 miles. However I’ve gotten a bit comfortable with that and all the training schedules I read (but did not follow oddly enough) have you running just under your race length before the race. So I’m going to run just two or three more times before the race 3 to 4 miles and no more.
I’ll keep you posted. Now, off to handbalancing practice and silks training??? ah my life…
