Race Day Draws Closer

This weekend, I got the next month of my training plan, which takes me up to taper.

This is kind of terrifying, because after reading it, I feel like there’s not that much time left and I’m never going to be ready.

Except that I will be.  I’ve been training for months.  I’m putting in the time.  I’m following my training plan.  At this point, I just need to continue to stick to my workouts, put in the time, but also make sure that I’m getting enough rest and eating well.  I got on the scale this morning and it was… not pretty.  Every pound I gain is an extra pound I have to haul up the hills, so that’s not a great thing.

Tonight, I will sit down and transfer my training schedule into my planner, because I’m old school and still keep a paper planner.  It’s the one place where I can track everything, so I can figure out how to balance training with work with pool closings with trips to visit family.

Somehow, writing it all down makes it seem less stressful.

Make a plan.  Follow the plan.  Succeed.  That’s what I keep telling myself.

Oh the joys of pre-race brain!  And my race is still weeks away!
