running scared (literally!)

Friday, February 01, 2013

Tomorrow is to be a 20 mile run. 20 miles! Seriously. I tried 20 miles 2 weeks ago. Only made 17. Can I do 20 tomorrow? Remains to be seen.

I have kept to the training schedule religiously since then, with only one exception. On Thursday, I should have run 30-45 minutes. I did not. I had worked the homeless shelter overnite Wednesday night, and only got about 5 hours sleep Thursday morning. It was windy as hell, and the temps were dropping. I didn't want to run, and I didn't. I did hike for 4.5 miles (1.5 hours) that afternoon, though. Hope that was a good substitute.

Tomorrow is going to be cold. 40 is the scheduled high. At least I don't have to decide whether to wear the cold gear. And the wind should not be as bad as it has been...that's good. I'm still scared of the run tho. I know I can go 10, 15, even 17 miles. But 20?!?!? Damn...gotta find out tomorrow...

Wish me luck, send me prayers, think good houghts for me. I will report in, late tomorrow...
