Challenges are scary!

Well, I'm into the final two weeks of my xc season, with only a few final speed workouts and a 10km race at OAs in Guelph, and nerves are starting to build. I've had a great season and I've progressed leaps and bounds over the last 4 months.

My racing started in August with a 43:20 (4:23/km) 10km road race in Ingersoll, and September saw me crank out a 7.5km in 29:55 (4:00/km) and last week's 5km road race in 18:02 (3:36/km) has me in high spirits for my upcoming 10km.

The final few steps toward that race involve reduce mileage weeks, but before I can crank out a blazing fast 10km I have to get through a key workout this weekend. On my own. This has me scared.

If I nail the workout, I know I'll be able to crank out that pace for the 10km race. If I don't, I get to face the hard truth that I can't, and I'll have to adjust accordingly.

Wish me luck, I'll be pumping out 8x1km repeats tomorrow, hopefully it all stays together as I wind down next week.
