DAY 69 - LONG RUN aka Race Day Rehearsal
If you're anything like me, you're probably reading this from the comfort of your bed, maybe sipping some coffee, pondering what sounds good for breakfast. Or maybe you're planning to skip breakfast for now and wait until after the run. Either way...WRONG! Today is race day rehearsal which means we should already have a plan for what we will eat exactly 4 Saturdays from today (eeeeeek!). Most of you will be in a hotel so I hate to break it to you but it's unlikely you'll have a toaster in your room. Peanut butter on a toasted English muffin is my pre-race fave so what is plan B? Instant oatmeal is a good option since hot water and a mug are easily obtained. I'll probably pick up a few bananas as well. Clif Bars are another one of my favorites because they are filling but don't feel like a brick in my stomach. If you're planning to skip breakfast prior to the race let me just warn you against that now. With a 7am start time, you need to be down near the convention center around 6am to check your bag, do some stretches, use the porto, and get to your corral. That means alarms are set for around 5am which means you are almost 2 hours into your day before you even take your first step of the race. You don't have to eat a lot but trust me, you will do better if you put something in your tummy before you toe the line. ..
🏆Do your best to make it great. If you can't make it great, at least make it happen! 🏆
