I'll be thinking of all of you as I'm out there. I'll be putting in my best effort no matter what. That's a good idea. All I can do is the best I'm capable of right? That's what I'll be trying to do, and not beat myself up over the results if they aren't medal worthy. I've been averaging just under 17 minute miles. That one day were I thought I was going to die, and thought I was crawling home, I finally checked my ipod for my speed and was a bit shocked to see that I had still somehow managed to walk around 20/21 minute miles. It felt so much worse. I need to manage my breathing a bit better to sneak in some more running. Thanks. I know I'm my own worst enemy when it comes to being hard on myself. Hopefully once I'm down there that Disney magic will work it's wonders on me. That is a possibility, but I am supposed to be doing this with a friend. She and I are at very similar fitness levels, so this is really a challenge for her as well. I want to be there to put the effort in with her. I'm trying to remember that this is just one night of my trip. One night very early in my trip, and I'll have the whole week after that to forget about it. Hopefully my nieces will be down visiting my mom and dad this weekend. (I live about 2 miles away from my parents). I could use some good quality niece hugs and laughs. It's really amazing what those things can do for you.
