Oh my goodness - there are no words to describe how poorly I performed today during our training today.

First, I forgot to pack my sports bra which really sucked, but we opted for a route through the woods so as to not scare other runners. Second, I forgot body glide - uggg. Third, having forgotten those 2 important things, I didn't even bother to put on my toe socks. Fourth, we might have not warmed up properly, but my left leg felt sooooo tight (like a sausage that was overly stuffed in a casing) - ODD! It got worse and so we cut our 4 miler short to only 2.5 miles - Pathetic! Surely C" is going to soon vote me off the island because I'm the weakest link. Needless to say, I'm really scared I'll not get a PR at the Rat Race on Sunday and more importantly, I'm afraid I'm going to fly all the way to Florida in November only to have to walk a HUGE amount of the Women's Half Marathon (how badly would that suck!!!!) I know that some runs are better than others, but I have to get some higher miles under my belt PDQ.
