5.3 Miles in celebration of my birthday yesterday. (I'm not exactly sure about the .3 I just guessed at that distance. :-) Slow and easy...but I still sweat a lot even at that pace.

 

Luke 22:44

And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.

I started my "5K to Boston" training today.

I went to the High School Track for the workout. Here's what I did....I hope it was right!

20 minutes Warm-Up = 9 Laps around the track

Drills - High Knee Walk x 20 Yards x 2 Times

100 Yards @ 20 seconds (timed the first one, it was actually 20.56 seconds, ran the next 5 by feel) Ran 6 of these with 100 Yard Jog between each

Rested for 5 Minutes (Stretched as I rested)

100 Yards @ 20 seconds (timed the last one, it was actually 18.97 seconds, ran all the others by feel) Ran 6 of these with 100 Yard Jog between each

20 minutes Cool-Down = 9 Laps around the track

This was a very easy workout.

 Matthew 19:23-24

 As he watched him go, Jesus told his disciples, “Do you have any idea how difficult it is for the rich to enter God’s kingdom? Let me tell you, it’s easier to gallop a camel through a needle’s eye than for the rich to enter God’s kingdom."

Added 20 miles on rode bike this evening.

 

The only hard thing about these gym days is the fact that I have to get up extra early to go to the gym. I also seems the earlier I get up the slower I get ready. :-(

 It's good my arms are not as sore now as they were a couple of weeks ago when I started back on the gym workouts.

Sorry, I don't post things like this very often but I really felt convicted to share this with you. Please take 1:50 seconds out of your life and listen to this!

Progression Run today. On the Bam Schedule it calls for 8 but my closest loop route is 9 so I made it 9 with the last mile just a jog/walk mile.

Started out slow for the first two miles then just started picking it up as I felt like it. The last half mile or so was pretty fast.

72 Degrees, 85% Humidity - It felt really hot and I sweated a lot. :-(

 

Romans 12:21 

Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Got up early to beat the heat (lol that's impossible) to do my workout:

2 Mile Warm-Up 

Drills x2:

High Knee Walk, High Knees, Butt Kicks, Fast Feet, Skips 

"Hill Blast" Workout:

6x8 sec Hill Blast

20 min cool-down

After that I went and rode with the bike group 26 miles - easy speed.

 2 Corinthians 11:14 

And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.
