21.5 miles on my Road Bike today @ 17.5 mph.

I get to see some interesting sights when I ride.

Psalm 50:9-10

 

I have no need of a bull from your stall
    or of goats from your pens,
10 for every animal of the forest is mine,
    and the cattle on a thousand hills.

Gym workout...no run or bike.

Upper body for an hour. I'm going to be sore!

Cycling in the morning today. Out and back to Kingsbury. I don't quite have my biking legs back yet. Hopefully I will be able to push the speed up as I ride more.

Still dealing with the foot issue. Went and bought orthotics and and wearing the continually now. I bought a pair of Newton Distance shoes the other day thinking they might help but I'm not sure. They don't seem to take the pressure off of the right spot.

Running felt good (except for the foot), breathing was laborsome. I'm losing ground!

Haven't run for 2 weeks with the 2nd Metatarsal Overload Syndrome. Trying to get it healed. Bought Orthotices and Newton Shoes and ran in them. Still seems irritated.

And the ones on the rock are those who, when they hear the word, receive it with joy. But these have no root; they believe for a while, and in time of testing fall away.

Back on the bike this morning. The weather was great for biking at 65 degrees, 93% humidity and 61 degree dewpoint. I rode a little faster this morning than I have the last couple of time. I think I'm getting my cycling legs back a little. With a push I held on to 20 mph for the 10 miles back in.

Had a flat on my bike this morning before I went out so I had to cut the ride a little short. 15 miles @ 18.1. A little slow as I was tired from the last two days at church camp and running 8 yesterday.

Ecclesiastes 2:24-26 

There is nothing better for a person than that he should eat and drink and find enjoyment in his toil. This also, I saw, is from the hand of God, for apart from him who can eat or who can have enjoyment? For to the one who pleases him God has given wisdom and knowledge and joy, but to the sinner he has given the business of gathering and collecting, only to give to one who pleases God. This also is vanity and a striving after wind.

Tried a 3 mile run today. The foot seems a little better but I'm afraid if I run too much on it it will just get worse.

Legs were a little tired after yesterday's long bike ride.

Cut my bike ride a little shorter today and a little slower.

16.5 Miles @ 17.4 mph. I did hit 42 mph on one long downhill just for fun!

13.5 Miles @ 18.5 mph in the evening.

4 Miles @ 7:35 Pace.

It's hard to believe I was running a faster pace for 20 miles just a few weeks ago. :-(

Did some research and found another way to tape my toe using kinesio tape. It seems to help. My foot did not seem any worse after this run. so I'm hoping to get two 3-4 miles runs in next week.

I've been in a little pain the last few days after suffering another cycling accident. No broken bones this time but I destroyed my bike, helmet and shoes. Here's a picture of the cuts and scrapes that aren't covered up by clothing. 

Isaiah 52:14-15

14 Just as there were many who were appalled at him—
    his appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any human being
    and his form marred beyond human likeness—
15 so he will sprinkle many nations,
    and kings will shut their mouths because of him.
For what they were not told, they will see,
    and what they have not heard, they will understand.
