This is a program I’ve been using, and it’s great! I’ve only been able to do this 3-4 days a week so it’ll take me a *wee* bit longer.

Care to join me? 🙂 I know it may not be much, but it’s a start (for me, at least)!

(And, if you want to start out slower, look at the other part of this program 3 miles in 30 days)

day 1-4

– walk for three minutes, then jog for six minutes

– walk for three minutes, then jog for four minutes

– walk for two minutes, then jog for three minutes

– walk for two minutes, then jog for three minutes

– walk for one minute, then jog for one minute

– walk for two minute cool down

day 5-8

– walk for three minutes, then jog for eight minutes

– walk for three minutes, then jog for six minutes

– walk for three minutes, then SPRINT for 15 seconds

– walk for two minutes, then SPRINT for 15 seconds

– walk for two minutes, then SPRINT for 10 seconds

– walk for two minute cool down

day 9-11

day 16

Jog for 30 minutes straight at an easy pace. Do not over do it, just nice & easy.

day 17

Jog for 30 minutes again but pick up the pace and make it for time. At this point you should be able to do 3 miles in 30 minutes (roughly 10 minutes per mile).

sometimes, i forget.

When I walk outside and see this. When my camera focuses in on God’s creation, my heart does too.

I forget to be afraid. To worry. To stress. I ignore all the lies Satan puts in my ear. When my world seems to be spinning, screaming out of control, I look outside and remember that God created all and everything is in His control.

This choice, to forget, is not an easy one, for sure. But it’s a choice.

And I’m not saying to be naive or ignorant of the troubles of this world. On the contrary.

Today, tomorrow, this week, remember that despite the pain, the difficulties, heart-aches, sin of this world, God sees all and controls all things. He controls the tornados, the hurricanes, the craziness, the chaos in everyone’s lives.
