Racing this Spring

It's been a tough winter and a cold snowy spring which really dampened my enthusiasm for training for my spring races.  I basically hibernated this winter and with spring so long in coming, I had to use the treadmill for training, and I really really hated that. 

So, I really wasn't ready for my first races of the season.  Lack of training on top of a back/hip injury made for a winter weight gain and lack of conditioning.    It's time to get to a physiotherapist for my back/hip and to get moving more without aggravating my injury.   
With nicer weather coming, I'm ready to shed those winter pounds and train and be ready for my next race!
