As the first race of the season approaches I find myself creating excuses for not running. I believe that there are several factors to this dilemma. First I have come back from a fairly serious hamstring injury this season and I'm skeptical that it will ever fully heal. Second I have done so much biking in the off season to stay in shape that my legs now feel like to bricks whenever I really try and push things. Third my poor showing at mothers day race has really taken a little wind out of the old sales. Ah well, time to suck it up and pound out a nice little farlek tonight. Oh ya, got the drafting license this weekend so that brings me one step closer to Nationals.
