Mental Toughness?!

   I wonder if the ability to run on a treadmill in a garage, with no media, and only a phone in case of an emergency call, for long periods of time is a way to train mental toughness? It can be difficult to stay interested! However; I am currently driven!
   Yesterday I took the day off not because I wanted to really, but I actually only had one hour of free time throughout the entire day from 5:30am to 9:30pm! It was a packed out day of ministry!! I always tell people be thankful you are busy! It beats the alternative!
  Today is a bit different. I have some time available so I put in a 70 minute GA (general aerobic) run. Finishing out at 7.01 miles. That's a total of 180 minutes so far this week and 19.01 treadmiles! I'm closing in on the 10 pound total of weight drop. That is a huge amount of weight! And in all reality I beat'cha I could lose another 10!
   I wish I had some pics to post before and after...it's difficult to tell anyway, most people thought I was skinny to begin with and even though I've dropped 10lbs no one has noticed except Sandy because she sees me........
  Peace!!

Long Run

    So I continue to increase my "long" run. I managed 9.2 miles of easy running. As usual my pace improved each mile. I have not...
