I will be running the Surftown Half Marathon on September 15th in Westerly. (I feel like I'm holding a press conference, I will answer questions at the end of this blog post!! I'm a mess!!) The amount of pressure that I'm putting on myself to perform well is ridiculous. Why all the pressure? In my mind if I can't run a sub two hour half marathon with decent blood sugars I have no business running one of the worlds most prestigious marathons.
Right now I don't feel as if I will run to well next Sunday. I have not run since Tuesday because of work, my blood sugars have also been a bit wacky but again I blame this on work. Saturday will be a big test run, I will be going for an eight to ten mile run around 8am. I'm more worried about my blood sugar than the run itself, I have been going on training runs in the afternoon and have no idea how a morning run will treat me. I'm looking forward to getting in to my running groove and enjoying the crisp morning air. This may sound odd but I feel that once I get in to my groove that I can run with anyone. I know that this is not the case but if it helps me run I will do my best to believe that I'm the best.
