Spiritual Prep

Ego is something we all have.  Some more than others.  It can be at an unhealthy level and some people are not very self aware. I noticed in my running tonight that as people or cars would come by, I was making sure to be running and keeping a good pace.  When they passed, my pace would slow.  I started paying attention and sure enough without thinking, I was running at times for show and was totally unaware.  Wonder if we do that in all our actions?  Behavior for the purpose of being seen but not behavior that is us and doing so totally unaware.  Jeremiah 17:9 says that the heart is deceitful above all.  It is good to guard our hearts and to inspect every thought and action against the Word of the Lord.  Even in a time when I escape in exercise, my worldly spirit tries to take over.  Thank you Lord for your great wisdom to offer a sacrifice for us all that is perfect and everlasting, covering our sins and failings once and for all.  Everyday make us better and help us to maturity in you.  In Jesus name I ask for us all.  Amen

Training Prep

Went out and ran 4 miles tonight at a 10:30 pace.  Wasn’t sure but thought I might have shin splints.  Shin muscles sure were sore and still are but I think it is just from getting back to the hard surface.  Did OK and not shin splints.  Will start wearing the sock for PF.  When it is really bad and I get up in the morning, I can hardly walk it is so painful.  The sock will hold back my toes and stretch the connective tissue across the bottom of my foot not allowing it to contract and hurt.  When I am running, I do OK then a knot develops on the ball of my foot and running is painful and make me have to stop and stretch.  Getting a little burned out on training so might back off a little.  Want to enjoy the experience.
