I don’t know what’s happening to me… it’s been two weeks since I started having feats of a gnawing feeling. I am not sure what it is, but I guess it could only be connected to my upcoming races; the Laguna Relay and the PAU, races that I think I am not so ready to do.
After my trip to Corregidor, I vowed that I will really increase my weekly mileage. I actually did 15K on Black Saturday with the team Boring which I immensely enjoyed and a 25K on Easter Sunday with the Team CB which I also enjoyed. I also did back to back the following weekend. I did the first 20K of the PAU with my buddies at the Team BR-PG and paced the Hotlegs with Carins and Carlo to a new Pikermi PR… so what gives? What’s this gnawing feeling all about? I don’t know – I really don’t.
Was I thinking when I registered for these races? Do other runners (recreational or competitive) feel this way at some point?
All I ever wanted is to have fun and to really enjoy the experience… and of course to at least have a respectable finish time. I was never pressured or stressed in my previous races, so why am I having doubts now?
Could be the hormones, don’t you think?!
