At the moment it feels like i am running more races than actual running training, haha. It always makes me a little nervous that i havent done any "pre race" runs, but i just havent felt like it. Even if i love running 110% i much prefer going to the gym and going for walks at the moment, and i will begin regular runs when i feel like it again. But i love running races so much, and i must admit... i am a bit of a medal whore. (hahaha love having medals!) and i also love having the race bib!!! However as i signed up for the race yesterday i didnt get a personalized race bib with my name on it. Those are always the best, when you see your name and know that it is your race number. But atleast i have a race number, i wasnt sure there would be any places left, so i am happy anyway!!
At the moment i am drinking coffee and lots of water and preparing myself for todays race! I never look at the race course before the run, as i feel that it doesnt really matter whether there are 100 hills or no hills, because i am going to run it anyway. I prefer to not psych myself out and know that there are loads of hills or that it will be a hard course etc its about enjoyment and in the end... i need to run it anyway, so who cares! :) Thats my tactic anyway, for others it helps to know so that they can tactfully run at a certain pace i.e slow down abit and save energy before a hill or to run fast when you know its just 1,5km of flat ground!
