Here is what it comes down to: I am probably in slightly worse shape than I was going into Headlands but I have slightly more confidence. 24hrs is a ridiculous amount of time to run for and the .9 mile loop is just off the charts nut-so. I am slightly nuts so that might be a good fit. I have an awesome running mom (Thank you so much Denise Carter) and maybe two meeting me there to help me out. So what should my goals be???? I would love love love to break 100 miles and know that I can but, I also don't want to set my goals too high. I honestly have no idea if my left foot and hip are willing to go the distance with me and I am terrified, yes I used the T word, of the wee hrs of the morning when I seem to have issues with bonking. Gosh Darn, I bonked so hard at Headlands I can still feel how bad it hurt deep in my core to have to stay awake but, then I didn't bonk at Heartland but, then I did at Lone Ranger and at Rocky. Oh man, I really hope the bonk doesn't come and kick my butt it is way worse than the pain in your legs and feet. The bonk is a mean old bugger, it kicks you in the A$$ and then makes you question yourself and your abilities. I HATE the bonk. Oh yes, sorry, back to expectations and goals, if all goes well, meaning my foot and hip hold out I want to hit 110 (yep I put it in writing) if all doesn't go well then I hope I run a smart race.
Happy Running All! I am off to get a run in (still not sure if I am tapering or training).
