A semi-daily chronicle of my life as a musician, a family man, and a citizen of Oregon.

Running Update

Yet again I can report that today I ran for longer than I have in my entire life - which turns out to be about 2.7 miles.  Ideally I'll make it up to 3 miles in 30 minutes but right now I'm running about 2.7 in that time.  This isn't that bad considering that it's a Monday night, which is always the crappiest running day for me because I hate running after work.

So out of the 9 weeks of the Couch to 5K program I've done the first jog of week 9.  Yay!  I'm proudest of myself for not missing a single day of the program for the whole 9 weeks.

Some of you have asked what's next on the list.  On the recommendation of folks on the Cool Running website I'm going to do Hal Higdon's Novice Spring Training.  So I won't be able to tell you I ran the farthest I've ever run in my life for at least another two weeks.  The other big change is going to be going from running for time to running for distance.   With the assistance of mapmyrun.com I've already got my routes planned for the first week.  After 12 weeks I'll be running 6 miles!
