As is tradition, on Saturday I was freaking out the day before my Sunday race. “I’m coming down with something.” “I think I have a sore throat.” “I may have an ear infection or it may be water in my ear from the beach yesterday.” I’m exhausted.” “My knees hurt.” ……
What the hell is wrong with me?! I’m not only a nervous wreck because I want to do well on my races but this time I became a hypochondriac! LOL.
I legitimately felt tired so I ended up taking a 2 hour nap in the middle of the day which is COMPLETELY out of character for me. I loaded up with zinc lozenges, water, coconut water, ate well and went to bed early hoping for the best and expecting the worst… ;-\
I was grateful, however, that I was able to go to rest and have no worries other than a silly little race. Life is good and I was excited for the following day’s activities….
