This week looks better then it was. I wimped out and didnt run to hard most of the week. Friday's workout was way to easy. I need to get my garmin fixed so I can speed my ass up. Somewhere I need to find some motivation...the thought of getting my butt kicked doesn't help, I'm just burnt out with the whole thing. Maybe I need to take some more time away from racing...or even (gasp) a whole year off.

Oh--BTW, I am running Mardi Gras, got an email that they would waive my to get in shape in 4 weeks. Hmmmm, we will see.
