And Now For an Easy Run

That's the agenda for today. I rested totally yesterday and now it's time to get back to work. I am pretty sore though so today will be a short, easy run. I'll probably try to log around 3 miles. That still sounds funny to me.

When I started I remember working so hard to get that first mile, then the second. Now I run a 5K distance on my easy, short days! It really helps me mentally when I can look back at where I have been. I still have a ways to go to get to my half and then of course on to the full marathon later this year. But today I reflect on how far I've come.

I think this is also a good life principle. Today I will train my mind to think on the things God has done in my life. Rather than looking at my situation which can seem overwhelming I will think about the things He has brought me through. I will not think of all that may lay ahead of me. I'll make my meditations dwell on all He has done for me. And I will pray that the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart will be acceptable in Your sight O lord.

Just like it takes training to get my body used to longer distances, my mind needs training to think on good things and the things of God. This will bring success in my life as I meditate on Him.
