I think I have a new mantra:
“Don’t think of the Dumbo Double Dare Challenge before bed”
Seriously…the thought of it flitted through my mind before I was just about to fall into dreamland…and BAM! I was awakened with pre-race adrenaline for the umpteenth time in the last month or so…and I didn’t fall asleep until 3am. Needless to say, my 6am alarm was not a pleasant sound this morning.
Today I am going to do a slow 9 miles–just to keep my legs moving and ready. Hopefully I don’t fall asleep while I am running…lol. After today’s run, I will officially start my taper for DDD. These nine miles will also be the last miles I run before turning 33. Holy crap–how did I get to be 33?!
But I digress–this isn’t an OMG I’m 33 post–this is an OMG I’m sleep deprived and excited for DDD post. 🙂
How do you combat excitement induced sleeplessness? Give me tips–as clearly I need them!
