Pre-race nerves?

Is it possible to be nervous without even knowing it? I’ve been doing so great with my running, my eating and the whole drinking enough water thing lately – that’s until last week, when I suddenly went a bit everywhere with my nutrition. So for a week or so now, my eating and drinking has been shit. My sleeping pattern has also been affected, and I’ve been falling asleep and waking up at the most random times. Perfect timing, right? Yesterday I started thinking.. Could this be because I’m nervous? I’ve told myself over and over again that I’m not nervous about the race. Not in a way where I’m flat out lying to myself and trying to convince myself that I’m not, but I honestly haven’t felt like I’m freaking out. Maybe I am. Maybe this is the sign of pre-race nerves? I don’t know, this it completely new to me..
Yesterday I ran my nice little 7 km. The weather was lovely, and the whole run was really good. Today I’m going to run my last little 5 km run before the race on Sunday with my mom, then we’re going to buy some things we need for the race. We’re only 4 days away from the marathon now, and I am really excited (and possibly nervous like a chicken walking by a KFC)! I need to start packing and get everything ready, oh my haha!

How do you deal with pre-race nerves?
What are your plans for the weekend?

  1. It sounds like it could be nerves! I totally agree with that last quote, being nervous means you care!

    You and your mom are going to do great and you are going to have the experience of a lifetime! Even though my marathon debut was less than stellar, it was definitely an experience where I learned a lot and I feel like it really impacted me. Looking forward to doing it again! πŸ™‚

    You’ll have to tweet out an update on race day so that I know how it went right away! I won’t be able to wait until you’ve rested up and had time to write a blog post, haha πŸ™‚
