Quick and dirty question! Given my abnormally high amount of anxiety regarding my training lately I'm thinking about NOT checking the schedule to find out how long my long run is this week. In theory, if I don't know the distance I can't freak out, right? Huge upside. I can just focus on my shorter lunchtime runs. Now, this also means that I won't have had a chance to look at the route. Downside. I'll find out the distance when I show up Saturday morning and hope for the best in terms of not getting lost. Yes, I do run with a group but I am also the slowest person in that group, so the rest of them are not always in visual contact, hence why I usually check out the route in advance. I'm pretty sure it is either 10 miles or 14 miles. I suppose I could just obsess about both but I am so buried with schoolwork right now that I don't think I have the emotional energy to spare. So, thoughts? Do I check the mileage or do I show up and be surprised? What would you do?
