I'm running a 10K for Smithfield's Health Days in the morning. It's a fun, family-oriented race and the distance isn't a big deal, but I still get nervous whenever I think about it. Is that silly? I think it's because I know I'll want to push myself and I know how bad that hurts. The course is up a canyon so I can already feel that hill. I keep telling myself I just have to put one foot in front of the other, but it's not helping!
Any advice to calm my nerves?
Do you ever get nervous before an intense workout?
