I am super grouchy, and super nervous. And I think the marathon is partially (ok, probably more than partially) to blame.
Ever since I started tapering, I have not been feeling well about the race. I feel like my mind is off. And I feel like my body is off. My legs feel weird. So weird that I actually considered placing a ‘Wanted’ add for a new left leg. Maybe while I am at it I should place a ‘Wanted’ add for a new mindset as well.
I keep hearing from people that these feelings, both mental and physical, are “normal”. Even if they are “normal”, I need to shake them ASAP. I cannot go into the race with this mentality.
Whew, so there we go – those are my feelings right now. And writing these feelings down actually did help a bit. If you know of any other things that might help me, please pass them along. I don’t know what my deal is, but I need some encouragement right now.
This grumpasaurus is signing off for the night.
Thinking happy thoughts that tomorrow goes better than today!
