It's funny how sometimes you are feeling good about something and suddenly you are very frightened. I ran 10.6km yesterday, tackled the evil horror hill, ran a bunch of random little hills and felt awesome. But today, I signed up to run the race, and now I am freaked out! I am really thankful that I saw my running BFF today and was able to talk to her about my nerves. At the rate I ran yesterday I will be slower than I was when I ran the race last year. She reminded me that a larger proportion of my run yesterday was the horror hill, and the last 5km of my race will be mostly flat so I will do better than I feel like it right now.
So I ran my first two training runs yesterday and today and am on my way to a 15km hill run finishing in under 2 hours!
