Just relaxing at home, after having the day off training today. I'm feeling pretty sore/tired after playing a hard 90 minutes for the reserve team last night. It was a really fun game to play in, I started at left midfield and feel like I had a great game overall. We won 3-2, which was a great result for us.

Other than playing games and training, I've been keeping really busy coaching for the club as well. The club runs an after school coaching program, with the local schools, for kids aged anywhere from 5-12. This happens 3 days a week and I've been working mostly with the older players, but I have also worked with some of the younger players. Working with the younger players is quite a challenge for me, because they don't speak much, if any English; and I don't speak much Norwegian. But it's definitely a great experience for me and allows me to practice speaking a bit of Norwegian in a no-pressure situation (with young kids). I have also been put in charge of the boys U17 team at the club. It's a great group of guys and I'm really enjoying working with them.

Other than that, not much else to report from here. I moved into a new apartment about 3 weeks ago and I'm loving my new place! It's really relaxing here and I'm nice and close to the stadium. Unfortunately summer is definitely coming to an end here. It's getting pretty cold some days and raining a lot! As of right now, there is just over a month to go in the season here. So I'm looking to finish this season as well as I possibly can.
