One of the main reasons I have stayed away from races is that I am forced to run a certain amount of miles at a certain time. I like my laid back running schedule. I run far when I want to depending on how I feel that day or during my run. This way I can adjust my running schedule depending on what the day has planned for me.
I just found out the day before my race in March, we are having a work event. This means I need to go to a different office, which is about 2 hours away. We are also going out to dinner that night as a group. My plans the night before my race was to have a nice healthy dinner with foods I am used to and to get bed at a decent hour.
Now, I need to have a 2 hour commute back home after eating a greasy meal at a restaurant with food I do not eat on a regular basis. Well see how this will impact me.
Has anyone run into a similar situation?
