I had PEs on the 8th and the 15th. I was on the one of the old machines on the 8th and a new machine on the 15th. I mention this because I’ve noticed that frequently with the old machines I get a “strange taste” in my mouth and a “flushed” feeling during the procedure; sometimes at the beginning of the PE, most times towards the end of the PE. However, I have never had this happen on the new machines. I’m guessing the new machines have a better control system that regulates something better than the old machines. I scheduled my next PE for 5 weeks from the 15th … here’s hoping I can make it that long and that I get on one of the new machines. 😉

I have been feeling very well the last 3 days. Last night I felt a little inflammation or burning in my fingers and a little fatigue, but it’s not evident today.

I have lost 12 lbs. on the cleanse diet and dropped two notches on my belt. And my blood pressure dropped 10 points (my blood pressure increases linerally with my weight).

Our Church’s praise and worship team played for the pre-race Protestant Service at the Houston Marathon Sunday. Being around all those runners increased my desire to run in a 10K event again. 😮

May God richly bless you all my friends,
