The Second Floor and Couch to 5K

Saturday we start to put up the tongue and groove for the second floor, we have about 1/4 of it done so far. It is a little bit different that laying the T&G for the roof because you have to lay them so the joints don't line up, put glue down before laying the T&G, and you have to be much more precise in your measuring, and you have to nail the boards just above the tongue so that the nails do not show, and you have to clamp the boards together before nailing them so that they are nice and tight.
So far it is looking really awesome.

Yesterday I started the first day of a couch to 5k plan. I went down to Lake Junaluska and walked for the first 5 minutes, then ran for 90 seconds and then walked for 60 seconds alternating for 20 minutes, then I walked to cool down for the last 5 minutes. I made it all the way around the Lake (2.6 miles) in just over 30 minutes. 

Mom is doing a couch to 5k plan of her own and we plan to run a 5k race together in May.

  1. That's really neat about the 5k. Your mom sent me the info about the one y'all are doing and I want to look at it good before I decide to do it. But I'm wanting to do at least one this year.
