How do YOU prepare?

I’m doing absolutely NOTHING this week in preparation for my race this Saturday!  I know…I know….I’m not really supposed to do a lot, but I mean I haven’t done a stitch of exercise this week!! And it’s Wednesday, already!!   

 I fear I’m going to meet my maker this race, as I really haven’t trained as much as I should have. (Damn that “no time”!!).  You see that logo?? That race is gonna shut (or SHOOT) me DOWN!!  I am one of those “athletes” (in adulthood, NOT when I was a real one) that always needs THAT race to kick my ass, which will piss me off, and make me get back on track!!  

I feel like every post since I started this blog is some how about being and STAYING on “track”!  It’s a broken record…my TimeHop and Facebook posts have all reflected the same!!! Maybe I should change the name to “Keeping on Track”….or how ’bout “Staying on the Track”…or maybe “Quit Your WHINING about the Track and Just Keep MOVING! Anyone??? Bueller?? Bueller??  😉

Any way…how do I prepare?? I’m going to DO this race and I’m going to bask in the glory of being ABLE to participate! I am working on perspective and how to change mine! I have NO reason to be worried and NO reason to complain.  The mental preparation for a race is just as important as the physical preparation.  And as Nike ALWAYS says…“JUST DO IT”!!!
