Life Modifications

 Got a new bike seat the other day but still experiencing painful pressure points.  Come to find out, seat adjustments happen in millimeters!  So, I made some modifications and today’s ride was much more comfortable.  Still some minor pressure but it was manageable, so I will keep tweaking.  Through my research, I’ve even discovered that I wasn’t sitting properly on the seat the whole time!  Come on, how can you mess that one up?

 I’m gonna assume that proper sitting posture leads to proper running posture because when I did my brick (a combination workout that includes biking and running back-to-back), my legs didn’t feel like bricks and I actually ran farther, at the same heart rate, than previously.  And maybe that was just a result of 10 weeks of training but that would also border on arrogance, so I’ll go with my first analysis.

 If I ever get to a point in my walk with Christ that I think I have it down pat, someone please slap me with a bike seat.  Then, when I regain consciousness, remind me of 1 Corinthians 10:1-13 (especially verse 12).  Just because I’ve done it a certain way before doesn’t make it right.
