December Fitness & Motivation Report

Fortunately, the shortest day of the year is rapidly approaching, just 2 and a half weeks. The shorter days are a real crimp to my ability to keep fit, sun is not coming up until after 8 and going down before 4…

4th December: ran 7.8Km, time avg. 6:50/Km, cut about 15 seconds/Km, big change in energy level, still dealing with a little bit of congestion. Huel progress is still going well, have gone through the process of getting off my blood pressure medicine. Cut it in half 2 months ago, and now eliminated it altogether. It has gone up, and watching every day… 

6th December: almost identical time to above, although the congestion is almost done. Blood pressure coming down… Also going to the gym now.

10th December ran 7.8Km, 7:12/Km, time going up, but no real reason, felt much better, no idea why it was like this

12th December ran the same 7.8Km course, but time way down, felt worse that the 10th but ray a lot faster, go figure…

16th/18th December read the 9MileMarathon, all about running shorter distances at much higher pace, upped the pace to 6:31/Km on Sunday and 6:40 today, much faster…

Travelled to the US, quite a few more runs, all in the videos…

Motivation

5th December was my Father’s birthday, rest his soul, as he was born in 1925… Amazing devotional on judgemental and hypocritical Christians, the subject of Truth and Grace yesterday. And truth delivered without grace is just blame and assertion of superiority on the part of the truth deliverer.

7th December: Great 10 min video from Steven Furtick: what happens vs. What you do with what happens…

10th December, Travel Light, really important…

12th December, working on the Encounter Meditation App, it is really awesome…

16th/18th December: issue for Christians. Praying, seems to be a pivot point in the growth of Christians… They pray, God doesn’t give them the answer they want, and they just decide that God doesn’t answer prayer…  So wrong, you have to get past your misunderstanding of what it means when God answers prayer…

Re-thinking and overhauling the concept of goal setting, moving it down to “stepping stones” to re-think the whole idea of working with changing circumstances, thoughts in the video…

2018 was an awesome year…
