At first glance, why not ease up today?

Knowing today is a workout day and that tomorrow (a Saturday) i arrive in Glacier National Park, today’s workout will be light normal.

The workout i do should have no bearing on the significant walking mileage the next seven days.

So the temptation to go light today has subsided.

Also, today marks the end of three-mailboxes-a-day.

The frustrations with progress, pain, and lack of fun

Staying healthy and overcoming obstacles happens at every level


The devil is challenging us all the time. And sometimes, more than others.

These are the most important tests we can take – the ones where the frustrations with progress, pain, and lack of fun are overwhelming evidence stacked in the devil’s favor.

Just yesterday, in the final minutes of a leisurely four-mile run, a cramp-like pain in the calf.

Crazier still, it was in the cool-down phase – an almost walking pace – just before the 800 meter cool down walk home.

Iced, stretched, ibuprofen – still hurts this morning.

No run today.

Hey devil, “Go to hell”!
