Well today I tried to run. It is still painful...! I  went ahead and ran 2 miles. My hip really hurt throughout the first mile but finally was bearable on the second.

This evening I rode my bike again. I don't get any pain at all when I ride the bike. I don't really know what to expect from the biking (speed, distance, etc.) but it seemed pretty good. I do know that it's sure working some different muscles than running :-) We'll see how sore I am after a few days of this. It was really hot when I biked (100 degrees) but I've figured out quickly that you can bear much more heat when riding a bike than running. There's always a breeze...

Does anyone know if you can change your Blog Profile to add the Biking. I think when I set up my Blog that was an option but now I can't figure out how to add it...?

If you want a Bible Verse that will really make your scratch your head, here it is...

Ezekiel 1:15-21

15 As I looked at the creatures, suddenly there was a wheel on the earth corresponding to all four faces of the creatures. 16 The appearance and composition of the wheels were like sparkling topaz. There was one shape for all four of them, as if one wheel were inside another. 17 When they moved in any of the four directions, they moved without swerving. 18 Their rims were tall and terrifying, because all four of them were filled with eyes all around. 19 When the creatures moved, the wheels moved next to them. Whenever the creatures rose above the earth, the wheels also rose up. 20 Wherever the wind would appear to go, the wind would make them go there too. The wheels rose up beside them, because the spirit of the creatures was in the wheels. 21 When they moved, the wheels[c] moved; when they stood still, the wheels stood still; and when they rose above the earth, the wheels rose up along with them, because the spirit of the creatures was in the wheels.

Luke 12:18-20

 

   18 “Then he said, ‘This is what I’ll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store my surplus grain. 19 And I’ll say to myself, “You have plenty of grain laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.”’

   20 “But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?’

Well, I'm still trying to run a little...but still my progress is slow. My hip does not hurt as much as it originally did but it is still very painful. I don't think the little running I'm doing is hurting it any more and the biking doesn't seem to irritate it at all so....a little running and a lot (relative statment) of biking. The worst thing is all the bikers at work are really nagging me about getting more serious about it...Ha ha, just kidding, they are "encourging" me :-) Hope none of them read my running blog! LOL

Today's workout:

Morning: 2 mile run @ 7:20 pace ... Then a fast transition to the bike for 10 miles @ 17.7 mph pace

Evening: Bike for 22 miles @ 18.3 mph pace with about a 5 minute break at the halfway point

Total:

2 miles running

32 miles biking

Matthew 5:41
If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles.

Ha ha...ran 2 miles today and after I looked at my time each mile was within 1 second of what I ran on Wednesday. Oh well, not much more to talk about when I only run 2 miles :-)

I will probably bike about 25 miles this evening...

Matthew 5:10-12 

“Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. “Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Today was a real biking day... 55 miles Total

I went over to my friends today and rode with him 22 miles @ 14 mph speed. He had surgery on his arm about 6 months ago and has not ridden since then so he wanted to keep the speed slow.

Then I came home and rode another 25 miles. 12.5 miles out @ 16 mph speed and 12.5 miles back @ 18 mph speed.

Then I rode another 8 miles with my wife at an easy pace.

I would really like to run...!

Psalm 16:8

“I keep my eyes always on the LORD. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.”
