Last night I didn't sleep very well. The soreness in my legs was unusually prominent. I had run quite hard. It was so windy and my legs felt like lead. Usually I am so proud that I have made the goal distance. Yesterday I was unhappy with my body. At one point I would look at my pace and it was good-then the wind would gust. I would be running hard, pumping the arms and I would be at lease thirty seconds slower. My body didn't like yesterday's run. My mind did, and it will help as I increase distances, but it wore me out. I'm still a bit sore today.
I read this verse today for my Bible reading: “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”” Joshua 1:9 NIV I am reminded of my one little word-Brave. I haven't been lately, in fact-unless you count my leaving Facebook ;)-I've done nothing out of the ordinary lately. Just sitting in my lukewarm comfort zone.
Got my letter emailed out today, read for fun, am blogging now and will do the ab exercises a little later.
Looking forward to going and seeing the Lorax as a family in the next few minutes. I read that book to our oldest while we were expecting her and then to both girls as they grew-trying to encourage environmental awareness. :) Hope the movie carries the message to many other kids, the way the book does.
