However by no means 100% READY to CRUSH IT. More often than not want I had a number of extra weeks to coach, skilled more durable, did one thing totally different in coaching… and so on.
Till I spotted that IT’S BETTER TO BE 10% UNDER-TRAINED THAN 1% OVER-TRAINED.

Studying that listening to it from many alternative working coaches and seasoned runners made me see issues otherwise main as much as race day.
Your number one precedence is to get to the Begin Line –> wholesome (bodily & mentally), properly rested, fueled and hydrated.
For those who opted out of a run as a result of… you felt a possible damage, have been sick, wanted extra time to get well, your tasks, climate, and so on
That’s legitimate and fairly widespread. Bear in mind, LIFE occasions are going to occur over the course of 12-18 weeks! Small issues, BIG THINGS and random-couldn’t-have-planned-for-it-things will occur. It’s okay.
Don’t obsess over what you didn’t do. Concentrate on what you probably did.
