Today was a good day of biking after my 20 mile run yesterday. Took my bike to church and rode home. The weater was good for biking, 58 degrees and mostly cloudy with only a light breeze.

Today I was supposed to run my Repeats on the track but it was raining so I decided to wait until tomorrow. I also had to get up at 3:30 to take my daughter to the airport. I went to the gym and rode the stationary bike.

2 Timothy 1:7

7 For God did not give us a spirit of fear. He gave us a spirit of power and of love and of a good mind.

Have a GREAT day!

7th Week (Out of 18) of the RLRF Program and I'm thinking things are coming together. Today I ran my Repeats and almost hit all the paces exactly and the recoveries were very close to the program specifications (I took an extra 30 seconds on the last two recoveries).

As a note: All my body parts seem to be holding up pretty well. The only "slightly" sore area is my glute-ham on my left leg which has always been an irritant. I've been using a tennis ball to stretch it and it has been helping. I'm not mentioning my glute-ham for any other reason than to document it...again, it's no different than it's been for as long as I can remember.

I hope everyone is haveing a great Christmas week...the Blog has been really quiet.

Luke 1: 30-33

 30 The angel said to her, “Mary, do not be afraid. You have found favor with God. 31 See! You are to become a mother and have a Son. You are to give Him the name Jesus. 32 He will be great. He will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give Him the place where His early father David sat. 33 He will be King over the family of Jacob forever and His nation will have no end.”

I was supposed to run my Tempo Run today but I wimped out because it looked like it was going to be raining at 5:30 am when I needed to start. As it turns out the rain had blown over and the skies were clear. I had already made plans to go to the gym so I just stuck to that plan. I'll do my Tempo Run tomorrow morning then my long run on Saturday. It was probably best to switch days anyway because the road was very wet and I have several low water crossings where I would have had to run through the water about anckle deep.

Deuteronomy 18:22

 22When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.

The weather was a little cool today (40 Degrees) and there was a fairly strong breeze (20 mph).  Although my Avg time was a few seconds slower than planned I feel this was a very sucessful run.

My running schedule has gotten a little messed up this week so I' going to have to run my long run tomorrow. I'ts only 13 miles but it is at a faster pace. Here's today's run:

The wind made this run very tough. The first 2 miles were directly into the wind and uphill. Miles 3-4 were with the wind or with a cross wind. Mile 5 was with the wind but most
