Day 6 Week 19 – Tapering Jitters?

8 days to Wineglass Marathon.

People ask me if I am getting the jitters.  Oddly, no. At least not like what I had experienced in the past.

This year, I  have trained well.  All the runs in the past 19 weeks have built not only my running legs and cardio but also my confidence.  I have a solid base.  Now I am ready for the race day to arrive so I can execute what I have been training for.

I feel a sense of a calmness. Wish to continue this mental preparedness in the coming week.  Instead of experiencing fear due to lack of practice or whatever other reasons, I feel the fire within.  My heart is eager.  What a difference!

Today I ran 8 mile long run – all easy pace (9:00 to 9:45).  I also took gel to re-acquaint myself with it.
