AM: Dropped Abby off at church for a church trip for the week then went over to West High to watch the Transplant Games 1500. Ashton won as usual. That whole event is a celebration of life. I met a guy today who donated a kidney to a complete stranger he read about in a newspaper. I also overheard a conversation involving a woman close to my age who said she had lived 3 years with her new heart and was praying for 11 more. 

Noon: Went to the gym and did 6.25 miles on the "helixtipical stepper" and then swam 30 laps. Might cut back on the running for a while to get rid of my plantar fascitis.

PM: Mounted my 1993 Specialized Hardrock mountain bike and rode 21 miles. I'm pooped! My butt will make me pay tomorrow as the seat is narrow and the bike has no suspension. But hopefully my foot will thank me. Going to cross train until its' better.

Also walked 2 miles in the gully at practice.

125 push-ups. 125 sit-ups

AM: 2 mile walk.

PM: Walked to the gym then did 8 more miles of cross training with some intervals of sort tossed in. Body weight strength training - push-ups, abs, pull-ups, dips etc... walked home.

Finally got an audible subscription. Andy and I are listening to Band of Brothers by Stephen Ambrose driving to and from practice and I'm listening to The Swerve: How the World Became Modern by Stephen Greenblatt on my own.
