I've got a half marathon coming up on Saturday. I think I have put in enough mileage.. (longest run was 11 miles 2 weeks ago, but I've done 3 11 mile runs before then as well) this week I've been trying to take it easy, ran 8 miles on sunday and then have been doing easy 3-4 milers and am planning on taking tomorrow off or just going on a little 2 miles if I'm dying to..
I have 2 questions.
1. I count calories, usually between 15-1700 daily. All week Ive been closer to 1700, but should I go a little above that today and tomorrow? I want to have enough energy but I also dont want to feel bloated or weighted down. ( I do notice that after i binge, I have CRAZY energy to run the next day, but also have mega digestive issues) So- do you usually eat a little more in the days before a race?
2. how do you calm your nerves? I am dying here!
maybe this is silly, but I am just so nervous!
