Countdown to Race Day: 20

on October 1, 2012

I have said this before, but I can’t believe how quickly time is flying by.  It is the 1st of October….how did this happen?  In only 20 days it will be race day!  Holy Cow!!!

I am confident that my training has done its job and in 20 days I will be ready to run 21.1km in 2 hours and 30 minutes or less.  In the past, the mental part of my running has been a weakness.  To prevent it from being a problem this time, I am going to spend the next 20 days working on my “mental game”.

Today’s motivational message is courtesy of Jillian Michaels.  She is hard core!

keep going

How do you mentally prepare for race day?

    My half Marathon is on the 14th…Less than two weeks away. I have been prepping and doing my best to stick to my training plan. My mental game has been strong until about two weeks ago but now I am struggling. I know I am ready physically I just hope I enjoy the whole experience.

    Best of luck on your run. Oh, by the way my goal time is 2:20 but after this weekend I think I will be more around the 2:30 time.
