Yeah, I know.  I said I would start posting on the weekend about Friday and I didn’t.  Oh well, guess it means that nothing exciting happened on Friday.  It was Friday.  And it wasn’t the Friday kind of Friday, but just Friday.  Boring and slow, busy but nothing to keep my mind occupied, knowing it was the end of the week but still 1 day closer to the beginning of next week.

I’m a glass-is-empty-because-I-drank-it-all kinda guy.

The good news is that I put many miles on my feet.  I’ve sort of become addicted to running.  I was warned about that, but I didn’t know if it was going to happen.  Why? Because I used to HATE running.  And not just HATE, but actually HATE running.  I would rather fall off a tall building than run.  Now I am looking forward to my 2 and 3 and 4 and 5 mile daily runs.

What craziness is happening here.

Other than that, I had a wonderful date night with my wife.  We went and saw Jekyll and Hyde: The Musical which was pretty good, then went to dinner.  Had our shopping date on Sunday and then watched the Broncos game which was far too close.  Watched one fantasy team win and the other one get spanked (so far, Monday could change that) and just had a nice little weekend.

Exercise:

Friday – 4.62 miles

Saturday – 2.57 miles (and a walk with my wife in the evening)

Sunday – 4.56 miles

    1. I can’t really put my finger on what it was that got me so into it. I think that using the C25K program was a huge boost. It showed me exactly what I could do and that I could do it at a pace I could handle. Probably the clincher was doing my first race. My wife and I did the Dirty Dash and at the point where I could finish at 3 miles or continue on for 3 more, I chose to continue on. It felt great to accomplish something I thought I’d never do. At this point, I am excited for every race that I am about to do because I want to try and push myself further. I still weigh over 270 pounds but I am running 5Ks in 30 minutes or less and plan on doing a 10K by next spring. Eventually I want to do a half marathon, marathon and even the Ragnar.

      1. Sounds amazing well done for coming so far with it, I would like to be able to just jog on the treadmill for 10-15 minutes without feeling like my life is flashing before my eyes i might give that c25k a go and see what happens! Keep up the good work!

      2. Thanks! And I wish you luck. C25K is a great way to start because you alternate between jogging and walking and build up each week. You’ll be amazed at what you can do 🙂
