Ever have a dream in which you’re running in slow motion? Legs feel like lead. Each step requires extreme effort. No matter how hard you try, it’s as if you are trekking through a thick ocean of peanut butter instead of achieving a race PB. Turns out you are not alone in experiencing this sluggish struggle. According to Mashable, slow-motion running is the 55th most common dream.

In addition to the slow-mo standard, runners can be subject to all kinds of crazy dreams the night before a race. We decided to compile a list of other experiences runners have during shut-eye sessions. Some are sweet dreams, and others are nightmares. See how many you can relate to.

1. Oversleeping and missing the race:

2. Forgetting how to run correctly:

3. Being chased:

4. Having to go music-less due to the sudden death of an iPod during a run or race:

5. Getting injured:

6. Having an epic run (the best dream of all)
