      That's more than I would have recommended so soon to a race. But a lot of it is psychological so if this eased your mind, it's probably okay.

      Smart man! The hardest part of any training is knowing and listening to what your body is needing. Every plan needs a revision when necessary. I am sure the extra rest and easy days will have you ready for race day.

      Looks like a good plan for the week, though you don't really need to do a speed work day tomorrow but if you do, I recommend keeping it short. As for what I do, self employed design engineer. Been pretty much captive to my largest customer for a while, but things are getting iffy now and time to look around for more customers soon I think.

      Agree with Cortni T - your reactions are just that - your own personal reactions to things outside of you and you can either let them control you or chose to have full control over them. Every run (especially the long ones) are ways to prepare yourself for the real event. Prepare to let the negatives roll off you and find the positive in every moment. It is there, waiting for you to find it. You have shared so many experiences of turning the negative experiences to positive ones - you can do it!
