I have not had pre-race jitters in forever.
I have a measly little 5K tomorrow. Thing is, Skeletor wants to see what I can lay down.
I felt ok about it, until I went to the track today for some Pick ups.
My right calf started to hurt like crazy and be very tight and my run to begin with was a total shuffle. Things hurt. In a way that made me want to stop immediately.
I guess it loosened up a little, but wow the track is SO flat, kind of felt really wierd to run and even though I was going pretty fast, I could not seem to get going at all. I felt as if I was moving in Slo-mo.
And my calf hurt. I did the 4 repeats of a 5 second pickup, or what I thought was a 5 second pick up and bam went home.
I want to do really well in the race, but. I suspect it might not be a really awesome race for me. Stupidly, I don’t want to tell Skeletor if it is a terrible time. I will be SO embarrassed. It’s one thing to lay down a horrific time and laugh it off, and say, “I did it for fun!” It’s another to have to report it to Skeletor and know he plans to base a lot of training on this one 3 mile race..
lets all think great thoughts for me.
