Wow...what a perfect day for running. After two days off I was ready to run :-) I would like to be running longer but I know I shouldn't. I guess I was so excited I completly forgot my HR monitor. At mile 3 I though "man, I'm feeling pretty good" and looked to see what my HR was and then realized I didn't have the monitor on. These 10 miles felt really good. I didn't struggle at all and walked off, at the end of the run, with my legs still feeling good. I would like to have the HR readings but I'll take the "good" feeling and log it as a moderate effort :-)

Two weeks and I will run the Chosen "half" Marathon for Adoption. I'm hoping to run as fast or faster than I did last year.  It's hard to tell where my conditioning is compared to last year as I wasn't running consistant last year and most of the miles were on the treadmill. Total milage per week was only about 30.

Here's today's run:

I got my bike back from the shop a couple of days ago. My legs were a little tired from running so I decided to bike today. I haven't biked in about 3 weeks. The effort seemed a little hard for the speed.

John 3:1-36

Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. This man came to Jesus by night and said to him, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come from God, for no one can do these signs that you do unless God is with him.” Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Nicodemus said to him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born?” Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. ...
