Endure and persist; this pain will turn to your good. - Ovid

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. - Romans 5:1-5

AM - very tired this morning, and slept in. Driving and trips always takes it out of me. Ran the dog around the block and then ran the Planet Walk. Didn't wear watch, but it was very slow. Hamstring felt pretty good, no worse for wear from Saturday.

(Adrenaline: 90 miles)

PM - ran with Cody through River Heights to the gym. Pace was easy, around 7:30-8:00/mile. At the gym, I did 15 minutes on the elliptical and 15 minutes on the bike, then lifted:

  • 1x20 arm curls @ 25 lbs
  • 2x12 4-way hip @ 80 lbs
  • 2x18 lunges @ 15 lbs

Ran home.
