Happy Friday! We’re almost to the weekend again. Woot!
So last night I was having major stress and anxiety as I finished up my laundry and packing for this weekend’s race. At this point, I’m just anxious to race! I’m thankful I had my Jazzercise class in the middle of the evening to help me focus on something else for a bit. I have lots of clothing options packed, so I know I’ll be set for Saturday morning. I’m still nervous that I’ve forgotten something important though. 🙂 I have my outfits, shoes, compression socks, gels, and water bottle packed. Those are my essentials, and they will get me through my hilly 13.1 miles tomorrow AM!
This morning I tried to sleep in, but my mind was anxious for me to be awake around 5:30. I also wanted to get into work early today so I can leave early to load up the car, so I decided to just get up and start my day. No workout today! So I made it to work by 7 AM which is a miracle! Now I can leave early guilt-free and get my ‘ducks in a row’ before we hit the road.
Breakfast was nice and carby today. Some thick Greek yogurt and oatmeal + a banana were on the menu this morning. The banana was overripe and the oatmeal looked gross, so I decided photographs weren’t necessary. 🙂
A Clif Bar sufficed as my carbolicious snack this AM. Did you know those delicious little bars have 43 grams of carbs in them?! Holy smokes, they pack a punch.
Remember how I was feeling icky yesterday? Well the lovely people from CVS pharmacy must’ve known, and I got a free sample of Airborne in the mail last night!
I was so excited. I took one of them right away and the other 3 tablets this morning. I must say, they tasted a little funky, but they weren’t too bad for being full of vitamins.
Hopefully they give my immune system a nice little kick today to push this sinus stuff out of my head! No sore throat today – just some sinus pressure and a runny nose. I feel great otherwise, so I’ll take it. 🙂
On my lunch break today, I walked Mac and double-checked that I had everything packed.
My tiny suitcase is about 90% loaded with running apparel and the other 10% with everyday clothes. I may end up wearing running tights and tennis shoes all weekend, but at least I will be comfy!
I checked the weather one more time this morning. Tomorrow’s forecast for STL is looking good, minus the wind!
I’m hoping for a temp right around 30 degrees with some sunshine. And hopefully the wind will have some mercy. Especially on the hills. Fingers crossed.
Okay, I’m headed out in a couple hours (I’m anxious – can you tell?!). I hope you all enjoy your evening and the weekend! I will check in with my results as soon as I get a quick second. See you all after the 13.1!
