I've been trying to lay low this week and save myself for the Eastman 10k run I entered earlier this year. I've not run a 10k in a while but I have been running and I figure it's too late to attempt it now. The course is mostly flat and I know it shouldn't be a problem but everytime I run these events I always wished I had trained harder. It's hard to give up days riding especially in the summer months to go running. I enjoy running here and there but for me cycling is where it's at.
One thing that might just help me in my run Saturday is my new haircut. Not only did I shave a few grams off my body weight but I'm much more aerodynamic and my body is more effective at cooling itself. Aerodynamics, lower body mass & more efficient cooling, that's got to get me a few positions closer to the podium. I'm almost sure of it, now if I can just convince Melinda the new do looks good on me it'll be a win win situation. bzzzrt!
