T-minus 1 week & 2 lbs.

Well one week from tomorrow is my 10k! I'm getting a little nervous. I was doing really well with my distance building, but for the past 3 weeks I've not attempted more than 4.6 miles! I have been doing lots of hill training, but not distance...
Why? Well my trail is only 4.6 miles, I've been out of town and had to run on my parents trail (which is 3.5 + once around the block = 4.2) and it's FREAKIN FREEZING!!!

So as of now, my longest is 4.6, and I have to run 6.2 in 8 days... I'm a little worried! I'm hoping to do 5.5 this weekend (run from my house to my trail, then run the trail and back to my house) but I think that's the farthest I'll go...eek!

And a little weight update: I'm 2 lbs. away from -80, so I'm hoping when I weight myself friday morning I'll be down 2 (or at least 1) because I'd like to hit my -80 by Thanksgiving!


  1. if you can do 5.5 this weekend, you're in great shape to do the 10K, don't even worry about it!

    the last two years i've done a 10 miler in the spring, and i've only gotten up to between 8 and 9 during training and have been fine during the race!

    good luck!!!

  2. Good luck with your race. I have faith that you will make your goal by Thanksgiving.

  3. You are an inspiration! I hope you do well on your 10k. The longest distance I've attempted at a race is only an 8k. You'll do great!
