…so you have to implement a back-up strategy.
I certainly was not as diligent in my training for this 2nd marathon as I was last year for the 1st.
I’ve experienced some bad knee pain over the past couple of months.
I’m coming down with a cold or something sniffly and blah-feeling.
I’m running in a brand new city with no idea what the course has in store for me. (I should probably check what time the race even starts!)
I feel totally unprepared…
So this week, I’ll be focusing on preparing mentally.
I’ll squeeze in some extra yoga sessions.
I’ll eat better and sleep longer.
Barring any unforeseen disaster, I will finish the marathon on Sunday.
And enjoy every step of the journey to the finish line.
