A Training Prayer

Lord, please bless my workout. As I train my arms, let it remind me that I�m held tightly in Yours. As I work my legs, let it be only to follow you more closely. When I work my chest, may it be safely under a breastplate of righteousness. And when I hit my back, I�ll recall that I�ll never be attacked by surprise. And finally Lord, allow my beating heart to grow stronger, knowing that�s exactly where You live. Yes Lord, please bless my workout. I�m a temple, here to worship.

In Jesus� name, I train, Amen.

"Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. "
1 Corinthians 9:24

"Brothers and sisters, I can't consider myself a winner yet. This is what I do: I don't look back, I lengthen my stride, and I run straight toward the goal to win the prize that God's heavenly call offers in Christ Jesus."
Philippians 3:13-14

"Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body,"
1 Cor. 6:19-20

"For physical training is of some value, but training in godliness has value now and in the life to come." -1 Timothy 4:8

"Therefore, I urge you brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as LIVING SACRIFICES--holy and pleasing to God. This is your spiritual act of worship. Do not be conformed any longer to the pattern of this world but be TRANSFORMED by the RENEWING OF YOUR MIND. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is---His good, pleasing, and perfect will."
Romans 12: 1-2

    When I left spark for a while I was not in a good place. But now that I am back and on track I have lost 20lbs and have another 20 to go. Boy gettin back into the groove over 50 isn't so easy, but I am making strides. Thanks for the support. emoticon emoticon

    So, when I finish Insanity again I will be doing P90x. Is there enough cardio in it? Do you do something different? If so, how do you do it without over training?
