Ano daw?

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?!

  1. If I may, It may just be the excitement of the unknown that is building up and cannot be contained. Don’t stress over it! One foot at a time 🙂 Remember, it is the unknown the keeps us going. Let’s have fun!! 🙂

  2. BR is right. And to affirm, here’s something from Runner’s World Quote of the Day for April 26, 2010:

    Running long and hard is an ideal antidepressant, since it’s hard to run and feel sorry for yourself at the same time. Also, there are those hours of clearheadedness that follow a long run.
