That's just fear, that's not the truth. You are an athlete in training doing what athletes always do to perform well. If you had never been fat before, like some fortunate athletes, this would be a different story. But for us, doing stuff like this feels really fraught with danger. When it isn't because athletes do this all the time -- you know what marathon runners look like, right? And they don't look like our worst fears for ourselves at all. You will be okay. You've got this.
Thanks so much saef! As always, you are so correct about my craziness. In addition, it's like if I don't maintain my routine "the truth" will be revealed - that I am a complete phony and this house of cards will tumble.

I can't fathom the internal strength it must take for professional athletes to deal with injuries and set-backs when their livelihood depends on it!

At any rate: race bib picked up, 60 minutes yoga completed, whole wheat pasta eaten, clothes laid out, Garmin and MP3 player charged - I think I'm ready! Let's hope Mr. Achilles agrees come 7AM!

August 31: 50 minutes weight lifting (lats, delts)
60 minute yoga DVD
20 minutes foam rolling
