Endurance Testing

Our trainers will test us right up to our limit. We need to take necessary precautions. We must make sure that our heart is working well. If the heart is not ready for the training, then we will not finish the race well.

The heart's job is to make sure the necessary oxygen and nutrients are able to supply all the parts of the body. The heart has to Diagnostics on our hearts!fully support the system in order for the race to be run. If the heart doesn't want us to get there, then we won't be able to get there.

God has said over and over in the scriptures that what we say we want is not always what we want. In fact, we can be tricked by our very own heart. We think we have no problem running. But overconfidence can kill.

"They always go astray in their heart; and they did not know my ways." Hebrew 3:10
"The heart is more deceitful than all else And is desperately sick; Who can understand it?"
Jeremiah 17:9
