Don't Wish It Were Easier

Early yesterday morning I stumbled while crossing the street and strained my left hamstring. That muscle was already sore from a few weeks ago, when I was trying to improve my balance by standing on the Metro without hanging on and the train suddenly lurched. "Ouch! Guess I'd better not exercise for a while," I told myself.

But then I saw this in the latest issue of Ultrarunning magazine:

Don't wish it were easier.
Wish you were better.

... and knew I'd have to go out and run anyway!
