Is it just me, or is everything better with rainbow sprinkles on it? Rainbow sprinkles make me happy. And they make everything taste that much more delicious.
Remember this weekend when I said I was just plain excited and not nervous about Grandma’s? Well now I’m nervous. Not about anything specific. I just have had this general nervous/anxious/excited feeling since I woke up on Monday morning. Maybe it has to do with me compulsively checking the weather (because, you never know, it might change in the 10 minutes since the last time that I checked it!) Maybe it has to do with the fact that I haven’t figured out my exact pacing plan yet. Maybe it has to do with the fact that my goal is 10 minutes faster than my BQ time. Probably all of the above. And because I’m Type A, so the nerves were bound to come.
So what am I doing to calm my nerves?
- Reviewing my training log (thanks for the idea, Maria) to confirm that I AM READY!
- Trying to come up with a general pacing plan that will work for me, and hoping to have it in mind today, so that I can stop worrying about it.
- Trying to stay busy with other stuff to keep my mind from obsessing.
- Eating lots of rainbow sprinkles (which were delicious on some raspberry frozen yogurt with lunch today!)
