S.A.I.D.

I ran 11.71 miles today. I went into the forest and man was it wonderful! Not a car or a person for 10 miles! The specific adaption to imposed demands principal is at work in me right now. I am running hills and trails and I've never had this persistent, consistent demand imposed. I have lost four pounds this last month even with lesser miles!?
I was really feeling the demand on my legs, ankles, and lungs today. The 2K hill was on the return but I experienced a hill today on the trail portion even longer and steeper, the Garmin said a 400 foot rise over 1.4 miles.
I made it to a place called "Cobb Ridge." It was absolutely spectacular! I really sensed the awe of God today! The pine trees lining the road/trail, the wind singing through the trees. It was a delight!
I'm really beat but I am expecting increased strength because of this run. Peace!
