Due to various circumstances (mostly involving moving out of a damp mouse infested house) I am several weeks behind my planned schedule. The idea was to graduate at least a month before the 5k MoRun I had entered so I could have a few casual runs under my belt in the weeks before it and not be so overwhelmed.
Well things went to pot and very curiously it now happens that the MoRun next Saturday will be my graduation run!
I am worried because in all my 28minute runs (including the warm up/cool down) I'm only covering 4.9k. I don't know how much more I'll need time wise to cover 5k without the walking bits and I'm concerned it'll be way too much more time I'm not used to - say 40 minutes in total.
I feel like an idiot for getting side tracked and a massive amount of pressure to complete both my graduation run and THE "I can do it, I've proved this to myself, onwards and upwards" official 5k on the same day.
Has anyone did an official race on graduation day? Has anyone been worried about their distance? I don't know what to expect on race day and I really don't want to let myself duwn when I have come this far. I haven't stopped once in the running sections and am horribly single minded and hard on myself. Hmmm!
