There are 100 days left until October 8 (it’s actually 99 days now – I should have written this blog this morning! Lol). I vacillate between thinking that’s a lot of time and that’s way too little time. 🙂 The one constant thing about time is that it really doesn’t care what you do – it just keeps moving along. Today I ran three miles; Sunday I will run 16. That seems mind-boggling to me. The other day I told Lloyd that I’m feeling intimidated by this race. He told me if I wasn’t feeling scared, then he’d be worried. No coddling there. Lol.
He’s put my schedule in Training Peaks (a training program we use) through October 7. I haven’t looked at it in its entirety – I just look at what I’m supposed to do for the week I’m currently in. I feel as though if I actually see that I’m supposed to run some crazy distance, I’ll freak out. Lol. I figured this Sunday would be 16 miles, because I did 14 miles two weeks ago, and then we pulled back to 10 last week. But I didn’t actually look until yesterday, so I could start to figure out where I’m going to run and what I need to do about water (I think I’m getting a Camelbak or something along those lines).
We’ve raised over $1,000 since I posted a couple of weeks ago – you guys are fantastic! I totally appreciate all of the encouragement you’ve been giving.
If I survive Sunday, I’ll post. Have a great weekend!
