The Three Miles Before The Race...

I ran three miles yesterday, with strides at the end. And damn, my legs STILL felt sluggish. I had a slight sense of panic: how the heck am I going to do 9:30s during my race if I can't get through three miles?

Afterwards, I saw my coach's husband and told him my legs were tired. He said that this is a good thing. I'm tapering and my legs should be breaking down and rebuilding themselves.

But Tim tells me all the time: stop thinking and just run as fast as you can. :-) So I'm not as worried now. I know the route -- ran it two years in a row. And I'll just have to see what I got on Saturday.

I'm pretty excited. And we plan to have breakfast at a local place that I haven't been to yet...so there is a carrot dangling at the end of my race.
