Can you tell I'm trying to prepare myself mentally?

Race day is Sunday and today is the day where I'm doubting everything. Is that normal?

I'm doubting my ability. I'm completely doubting the condition I'm in - whatever that is now! Man, these shin splints completely threw me off mentally.

I have been drinking water all day. And drinking coffee. Counterproductive, I know. So I've been adding even MORE water. I'm cutting out dairy tomorrow too. I am not risking any messy business during my run if you catch my drift.

Dear self: relax. Each race will be a lesson and a preparation for the next one. 

Tomorrow I will post my pre-race rituals. Then Sunday is D-Day.

What are your pre-race rituals? What stretches do you "make sure" and incorporate before a run?

  1. My ritual is double hair buns, drink a giant glass of water when I first wake up (helps to make the PRD happen), and caffeine (don't do coffee so usually 5-hour energy). I rarely do static stretches before, just Swing my legs around a bunch to get the blood flowing. Good luck on sunday!
