All day long, I've been jittery and nervous for my 10K tomorrow. Normally, a race like this wouldn't make me nervous at all, but I've actually been training enough that a PR is a definite possibility, and I can't stop thinking about the run!

I ran to the gym this morning and lifted for chest and triceps:

3 sets of 12 -

Decline Chest Presses

Tricep Extensions

Pec Flys (with dumbbells)

Bench dips

... and some abs.

My legs felt really fresh, and I'm going to eat my pasta tonight (because it's tradition...I know I don't need to carb-load!) and go to bed early, because I have to be up at 6 to take a taxi to the stadium where the race starts!

It's my first real race in Korea (I ran a 5K on the base, but it was really informal), so I can't wait to see what it's like!


  1. I'll be curious to hear what a race is like there! Don't put too much pressure on yourself, see how you feel and enjoy the race!

  2. Good luck! I am sure you will have no problem with a PR!!

  3. It's terrible how we train harder and then the nerves are so much worse. I hate that! The more invested in training, the higher the nervous feelings rise. Try to take some calming breathes and realize, you are ready. Good Luck! MOst of all have fun.
