and off we go

This past week I ran 5 miles and participated in two (relatively low contact) practices. On Saturday, I played 60 minutes (second half of our first 30, the second 30, and the second half of the 3rd 30 - "friendly" games can be so complicated for selections and playing time!) and almost died in incredible humidity.

And the famed foot is doing ok! I'm picking up my super-cool Bone Stimulator from the doctor this week, so that should help with the ongoing "un-union" (the very scientific term my doctor used) at the original break site.

So, Monday I'm kicking off training for the Philadelphia Half Marathon. I'm using Hal Higdon's Novice plan, so the first week is 3, 2, 3 and 4 miles. Easy theory anyway...I haven't broken ten miles in a week been a while.


  1. Ooh! I'm excited to see how your training for the 1/2 marathon goes!! Please keep us posted! While I didn't to the C25K plan, ideally (and secretly) I hope to run a 1/2 marathon!

    Best of luck to you!

  2. Hope today went well... can't wait to hear about it!
