Week 14

Day 86

Exercise: Run

Time: 2 hours 20 minutes

Distance: 13 miles

I learned about dehydration today in an all too real way. This was the longest run I've ever done, and I only drank one bottle of water before starting, which clearly was not enough. Also, I made the brilliant decision to end my run a mile from where I parked my car, which is just plain stupid.

Anyway, I almost passed out afterwards, but we're good now.

Day 87

Exercise: Swim

Time: 40 minutes

Distance: laps

I thought today would be harder because of how sore I was from yesterday, but swimming seems to have a therapeutic effect on me. I love getting in the pool and enjoying complete silence for however long I'm underwater. There are very few places that offer the type of solace a swimming pool often has.

Day 88


Day 89

Exercise: Bike

Time: 1 hour 30 minutes

Distance: 22 miles

I still haven't fixed my shoe clip, but I'm going to take care of that tomorrow. Today, I biked in the gym, which was pretty boring. Thankfully, they had the Golf Channel on, so I was able to watch Masters coverage. 

It's hard to not have some sort of distraction while I'm working out. If I didn't have the TV in the gym, or music, or podcasts, I would be bored out of my mind. 

Day 90


Day 91


Day 92


I took extra off days at the end of this week for travel, but I still should have been able to get more exercises this week. It's getting harder to stay motivated every day, but every day is a new day and every week a new week. Instead of letting this bad week get me down, I'm going to start fresh tomorrow and try to make each of the following weeks better than the last. Today, I'm thankful that God gives me a fresh start every day.
