I've not blogged much lately. This hockey coaching thing is taking an incredible amount of time already, and the season doesn't start for another 4 months. It's going to be a lot of work, but hopefully it will be a worthwhile experience for both the kids and me.

I don't think I have blogged about this, but I started the C25K program 5 weeks ago. I finished week 5 yesterday, which was a 20 minute run, with no walking. I really didn't think I was going to be able to do it. It seemed like such a big jump to go from two 8 minutes runs with a 5 minute walk in between to a straight 20 minute run. There were many times that I thought I was going to have to stop and walk for a bit, but I just kept telling myself to keep pushing for another minute, then I was within 5 minutes of finishing and decided I couldn't quit then. I made it the full 20 minutes without walking. I'm still waiting to experience that runner high I keep reading about, but I did feel good once I was done (and had a few minutes to recover).

  1. Yeah, I never EVER come close to runner's high. I'd love to, but I don't. CONGRATS on pushing through your first long run. You did it!!!
