Doing Nothing Doesn’t Mean Doing Nothing
Sunday is definitely one of the best days of week. I’m surprised nobody has coined the phrase TGIS … Katy Perry, you sang gospel songs before. I hear a follow-up to your smash hit.
Even though I don’t have a scheduled training run on the books, that doesn’t give me an excuse to do nothing. In fact, doing nothing doesn’t mean doing nothing. Let me explain.
Just because you are in training and training schedules say “rest day”, this doesn’t give you a green light to do nothing. For me, it’s serving at church if it’s a Sunday. On my “rest days” of Tuesday and Thursday, that can mean doing a light workout with my good friends Tony Horton or Shaun T. THort or Shaun … we’re on a nickname basis now. Shoot, I’ve paid them enough through Beach Body DVDs, I should be on their speed dial.
So, today’s day of rest means a day of service. Ask yourself daily, what can you do to bless somebody else today? And it’s not only scientifically proven, but more importantly, supported by the Bible, you will reap what you sow.

- 6:50pm (Meal 3) — What goes best with a gourmet pizza? Some argue beer, but I’ll leave that to those Oktobrewfest participants last night. Fries are a great compliment to pizza and better yet, Burger King had a “don’t ask, don’t tell” deal going on. I just hit the drive-thru, asked for fries, and drove off. How cool is that! These new fries … not so good. I miss the old fries already, but that’s why they offer a sample.
- Break, considering I have a 16 miles run tomorrow. Want to start my week off with a bang and couldn’t think of a better way other than this. They say the most successful people in their particular industries always do the difficult tasks first. That will be my longest distance I’ve ever run so today, I eat well, enjoy the people around me, and enjoy the blessing of rest.
