So I didn't die obviously. Nasty dose of the flu though so I'm only feeling back to normal now. Went for a slow 2 miles yesterday and it was unnecessarily difficult. I was sweaty throughout and slightly nauseous so the smart thing would be to rest today.
But I'm doing a race instead!
Can't help myself! It's the inaugural running of my hometown 10k and as I'm home for the weekend anyway it would be a shame to miss it.
I have no idea how this is going to go. I can't use my 5k in slane for comparison as it was on trail. Also if it goes badly it might be due to the illness.
What I do know is I'm well trained for the distance and I know to expect pain and execute my race plan anyway. What I don't know is if the unquantifiable "it" will be there today. Judging by yesterday, no.. But then when is there ever a correlation between a final training run and race day? Wait and see I suppose!
I'm really excited though. Proper butterflies and everything!
