Aches and Pains and Fatigue, Oh My!

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

Oh my, indeed! Last night's 5K training session saw an increase in distance as well as in the jogging interval. 50% of the trek was uphill, with some slight incline and some pretty steep. But! The good news is, 50% was downhill. Thank goodness, the last half was the downhill part. Otherwise, I may not have made it back to my car. emoticon

This morning, my feet don't want to carry me. What's with that!?!?!? Those little muscles in and around my ankles scream each time I bend my foot. I'm walking like Charlie Chaplin - just tottering around on flat feet.

I'm trusting that this will get better. And I really believe it will. Is Satan trying to discourage me? You'd better believe he is! If I get healthier, get more energy, increase my stamina..., why, I just may have more oomph to serve God! Not what that ol' devil wants. But, hallelujah, greater is He that is in me, than he that is in the world!

Hang in there, fellow Sparkers! Together, we may just change the world~

    What a wonderful blog and a testimony. That ole emoticon likes to try and trip us up but, little does he know of the strength of the Lord,or, maybe he does and just like to war. I'm sure the soreness in your ankles will fade and just imagine how strong they will be then. I'm sure this is tough but, as you said on Saturday, you will love how you feel when you have finished that 5K and I will be so proud of you I could bust! Hugs, Mel emoticon
