One Week To Go!

I've been training since Christmas for this race and now it's just one week away. I'm starting to get nervous! When I get nervous I try to compensate by planning. I'm likely to have everything laid out for race day by Wednesday (and that's only because I work on Tuesday). I've started checking the weather forecast. Like, hourly. When I see rain predicted I tell myself the forecast this far out isn't accurate anyway. So why do I keep checking???

My legs are still not right. There's not one specific spot that hurts, so I don't think I'm injured. I'm still hoping they're just tired from racing the 15k and running 10 miles a few days later. The only running I've done was during the Gorilla Challenge. It didn't hurt but it was kinda stop/start so I never really fell into a rhythm. I scheduled a massage for tomorrow so hopefully that will help. I'm unsure of what to do this week. Should I walk, just to get my legs moving? Should I do some short easy runs? I felt like I had a well thought out plan for the past 3 months and with one week to go I don't know what to do.

Hopefully the massage will help! I wish I could give you some advice, but I'm the last person on earth that needs to be doling out advice on injuries. Lord knows I've had my fair share.
