Hi Bloggie World:
I know I have stated a few different times that I have to run a 11 miler this weekend...my longest run to date. I was planning on meeting 3 other girls tomorrow morning out in St. Louis for the run...the problem is, we had my son's 18mos photos scheduled for Sunday (outside) and it is suppose to rain, so we are looking to reschedule them for tomorrow morning at 10:30am. This will work, except I will miss my run with the girls. Me and my husband are planning on being in the pictures, and there is no way to get in a 11 mile run and get home get ready and make it to the pics by 10:30am.
I would have to run my 11 miler, my longest run ever, my PR for mileage, my only two miles point two short of a 1/2 marathon, A.L.L B.Y M.Y.S.E.L.F!!!!!!!! Can we say freak out!
I have never ran over 5 miles by myself...how am I going to do it, plus, it will most likely be in the rain, because I will do it Sunday morning. I need some help from my fellow running bloggers...Can I do this???
I mean, in my mind I can, but then I kind a, sort a, have a freak out moment and think...Can I really do this? This would place me in a place I have never been...I have ALWAYS ran my long runs with someone. Plus, I have no Garmin...What is a girl to do??? (I mean, I know I can use Map My Run, but I have become so accustomed to relying on my friends Garmins)
Anyways, I just needed to get this out while I am sitting here freaking out...like I said, I know I can do this, but in some ways, I feel like if I can accomplish this, I can accomplish anything, and that kind of scares me! (not really sure why...)
Has anyone else felt this way before? Any advice/motivation would be great!
Have a great day, and I will keep you posted on what happens....dang...11 miles (all by myself)
