Bend down, O Lord, and hear my prayer;
answer me, for I need your help.
Protect me, for I am devoted to you.
Save me, for I serve you and trust you.
You are my God.
Be merciful to me, O Lord,
for I am calling on you constantly.
Give me happiness, O Lord,
for I give myself to you.
O Lord, you are so good, so ready to forgive,
so full of unfailing love for all who ask for your help.
Listen closely to my prayer, O Lord;
hear my urgent cry.
I will call to you whenever I’m in trouble,
and you will answer me.  - Psalm 86:1-7

4:45am...7 miles on the treadmill at the gym at 6:38 average pace.  Cough still hanging around (and waking me up) and my calf was a bit sore so I took it easier today. (Guide 7)

4:45am...8 miles at 6:32 average pace on the treadmill at the gym.  Did not cough while running...not the story when I am just going through my day...must need to run more. (Guide 7)

A very busy day...melancholy due to a colleagues retirement but a good day of activities.

Busy day on day off.  Chores and and a massage late. Still cannot get rid of this cough.

Still have a cough I can't get rid of.  Plus busyness of the day with Church and hosting a dinner party for our elderly friend's led this day to be a day off.
