terrifying tens

i won't lie.

i am in fact very much terrified of this Sunday's Siemen's Run. sure its just 10 kilometers. but the thought of 10 very long kilometers, coupled with aches in my legs and the strong temptation to give up and walk cripples me with fear.

it's been more than 7 days since i last ran. or cycled/swam for that matter. which means it has been more than 7 days since i last worked my heart and tested my stamina. what more i have been sick the past 3-4 days, coughing and sneezing and producing a lot of phlegm and mucus. and that is why, this Sunday's run would most likely be a hard one for me.

I'd like to remain optimistic and aim for a 55 minute race. But somewhere in the depths of my conscience i know that a 60 (or even 65) minute target would be more feasible.

Owell...one of those downs in racing i guess...
