Rise up with a new day

I know today is supposed to be a rest day where the race is tomorrow, but after yesterday I couldn't just do nothing.

So I got up at 6:30 and ran to the church - which is one mile exactly - in 13:09. Since I didn't want to over do, I walked the last 2.1 miles at a 20 minute pace. The whole route took 55 minutes. To a certain degree, this eases my fears a bit as I was worried I wouldn't be able to do the race in under an hour; however, I know I can run at least 2 miles so even if I walk the last mile I'll be fine.

Time to make myself some breakfast, read the papers and spend the rest of the day resting up for tomorrow morning's race.
