Do you ever get nervous before a training run???

I'm sitting here at work, watching the clock tick the minutes by until I can get to the park to tackle my missed run from this morning, and I've got butterflies in my stomach. Butterflies! It's only training - not racing, but how do I convince my tummy of that?

It seems if I don't do my run first thing in the morning, my stomach does this to me. It's like it's telling me I shouldn't do afternoon runs, only morning. I don't get like this before a yoga class or before a bike ride. Only running. How wierd.

Anyways, it's a beautiful 88 degrees and sunny here. I'm gonna get some fuel and head to the track (before my motivation fails). Happy running!


  1. if it's a new distance or i'm trying for a goal time, i get nervous. Hope your run goes well!

  2. I get nervous running a long run. I love that feeling though...

    I hope you will have a good ruN!

  3. I do get nervous at every race, even 5ks!

  4. I get nervous for almost every run. Even an easy three around the block. Not sure why.
