and you know what that means…
random ramblings, anxious energy, and the mind jumping all over the place…
welcome to my blog post.
i am making sure to drink lots of water this week (and will add electrolytes as it gets closer). i am trying not to drink more than one cup of coffee a day because if i drink more, i drink less water. i will increase carbs later in the week and for now i am just trying to eat pretty normal and making sure its all good things! vegetables, whole grains, healthy fats, my pretty standard diet.
i have a stack of clothes behind me ready to be packed, but i don’t want to seem too anxious and have them packed already – what on earth will i do on thursday then?
i went to my last ART/chiropractor appointment tonight and got some last minute adjustments. the body should be ready to go very soon! my calves were a little tight but should be better tomorrow and i got my shoulders and legs and everything else worked on. i feel good!
our tree is up! that also makes it feel more like race week since we always have our tree up during thanksgiving weekend and that is always just before CIM. this race has become part of my holiday season the last 3 years, i think it will be weird without it the year i decide not to do it.
i have checked the forecast multiple times today. not because it’s going to change anything, but it might change something i want to pack! plus i am always checking the weather constantly even if i don’t have a race, so why would i change anything?
the weather is looking pretty much perfect right now. the chance of rain is down to 20% (from previously 60%) and the low is 39 with a high in the mid 50’s and partly cloudy. i couldn’t ask for much more perfect weather than that! we will see how things progress as the week continues on and the forecast continues to change.
other things on the do to list:
- playlist (any suggestions?)
- pace band
- water bottles
- i am sure many other medial tasks i will think of over the next day or two
i am excited, anxious (but not too anxious… i am not quite ready for the race to be here tomorrow), and definitely getting nervous. all good things though! and all things that i will attempt to bottle up through the rest of the week.
how do you handle race week nerves, jitters, excitement?
thank you for letting me partially handle mine through this blog post!
6 days to go!
