Jeremiah 17:14

You , Lord , are the one I praise . So heal me and rescue me ! Then I will be completely well and perfectly safe.

Here's a picture of my winning run at Halletsville World Series Team Roping last weekend :-)

It's official....the meatheads at the gym hate me! I was confronted by two of them (the leaders I presume) today about me sweating up the machines. They gave me a bottle of 409 and somewhat politely ask that I do a better job of wiping down the machines after I use them. They brought up the owner's name several times in the conversation so I'm sure I'll soon be looking for another gym.

I took a couple of vitamin I last night and one this morning to take away some of the pain in my side. My exercise consisted of riding the elliptical for 9 miles and then running on the TM for 3 miles. Total workout time was about two hours. I hate the elliptical machine! I'm not really sure how much good all of this is doing but this pain in my side is really p...ing me off (sorry for the fowl language). I think I'll just torture myself until it goes away!

Elliptical 9 Miles - HR Avg. = 137

TM 3 Miles @ 7:30 Pace - HR = 152,159,164

Matthew 21:12-14

 12-14Jesus went straight to the Temple and threw out everyone who had set up shop, buying and selling. He kicked over the tables of loan sharks and the stalls of dove merchants. He quoted this text:
   My house was designated a house of prayer;
   You have made it a hangout for thieves.
Now there was room for the blind and crippled to get in. They came to Jesus and he healed them.

My hip pain seems to be getting better. I went ahead and took two vitamin-I before bed last night and two again this morning. I went to the gym to ride the elliptical and run on the TM ... the meatheads were much nicer to me today. It's funny, my milage is higher this week than it's been for months. I feel somwhat guilty about logging elliptical miles as running miles (although the elliptical miles seem harder than actually running to me). I'm thinking about another 20 on the TM tomorrow...but just thinking right now.

Not worth posting any details...5 Mile Run (on the road), 5 Mile Run (on the TM), 5 Mile Ride on the Elliptical....Lots of sweat!
