41745810100961401944698[1]This weekend I continued my slow climb towards average running endurance, completing two laps of a two mile loop with Cindy.  It did not feel good, mentally I am further behind than I am physically.  I just have not been able to find that place where your body is on cruise control as the miles pass by at a manageable discomfort level.  I never feel comfortable anymore.

Today I missed my bench press partner but I pushed my numbers a little higher, despite the absence of a just in case spotter.  My single rep at 235lbs and two reps at 225lbs on the way down were just barely within the boundaries of my current strength levels.
