I was tossing and turning all night. I think I was more worried about getting sick than actually getting sick. I woke up this morning with a stuffy nose and scratchy throat, but not any worse off than yesterday. I’ve been drinking Vitamin Water Zero and Airborne to try to stave off this cold. I feel okay, just a little stuffy, so hopefully I’ll stay that way. Even if I do get a little sick, I think I’ll still be totally fine to run the race on Saturday. Not sure how that will affect my time though.
So speaking of time, I do have a time goal for this race. Time goals are tricky. It feels great to achieve them but it feels awful when I don’t. It’s very important to set realistic goals. If they aren’t, it just sets me up for disappointment. I’m not going to lie though, I’m looking to PR. I think that I can do it and here’s why. In 2010, I have PR’d in the 5K, 10K and 15K distances! How awesome would it be to add half-marathon to that list? My half marathon PR is 2:16:30. And on Saturday, I’d really like to beat that. Ideally, I’d like to run this race in 2:15.
So, there’s that. Going to bed.
