Workout 2/2: Row, Pull-up, Ring Push-up, SDLHP

I'm not sure if I addressed this before on my blog, but I have this fear of three simple letters..."DNF." For anyone who is into running, these letters may be familiar to you. They stand for "Did Not Finish." I loathe the sound of that expression, and I do not like the idea of having "DNF" placed behind my name in any area of my life. Thankfully, I have never had it applied to my name in any running races, even the infamous 2007 Chicago Marathon. But I don't think this term is only applicable to sports. "DNF" is a hideous term that can be applied to nearly every area of life. We all make commitments, and we must strive to finish each of those commitments. We have relationships that we do not want to see "DNF" placed after. We have goals that we do not want to see "DNF" placed after. We have responsibilities that we do not want to see "DNF" placed after. So in all you do and all you are, strive to "finish" it. And don't just finish, FINISH STRONG.

*I finally got to take my friend Brett. Brett, I hope you are recovering nicely. I think we both sat in church yesterday with very sore bodies. I could see him cringe when he sat down and empathized with him in my soreness/pain. In fact, I have decided to take the week off from strenuous workouts. My body is sick and sore, and it needs to recover. I am going to take my own advice that I wrote recently. I think this workout was even ill-advised since I had been battling an interesting throat thing for the past few days. Now it's really time to take off and let my body recover. My focus for the next week will be on getting control of my eating. Sweets have dominated my palate; time to kick the sugar habit again.

Great job on Saturday. Hope you're healing better and technique day is coming up for this week.

Sorry I inadvertently hit delete while posting earlier.

Hope you and Brett heal fast. Wouldn't want you to miss what's next... :)
