So, sorry I’ve been MIA this week. I was on the computer a lot this week job searching and resume/cover letter revamping. After that, I was pretty much over the computer thing. It felt great to disconnect actually.
Anyway, today the hubs and I went on a trail run together. This is not a normal occurrence because when I run with him I turn into a wimpy whiney girl and he turns into a, well, “not a nice runner” to put it nicely. I’m not as speedy on the trails as I am on the road because I’m afraid of twisting my ankle again and aggravating an old injury from my half marathon in Prague that consisted mostly of running on cobblestone. Plus, I’m just not coordinated. I admit it.
My husband, on the other hand, is VERY coordinated. He is very comfortable with his own body and all of the movements that come with it. I guess this comes from playing soccer since he was 5. My speech and debate and marching band, unfortunately, don’t compare.
Our typical runs together involve:
- Him: running at least 10 feet in front of me
- Me: yelling, “I thought you said you were going to run with me!”
- Him: “Well, run faster.”
- Me: pissed off at him.
- Him: Running off with Kai
- Me: Practically running by myself wishing I had brought my ipod with me.
- Me: Telling myself that I will never run with him again, then forgetting months later.
- Him: Not understanding why I’m pissed.
Just to reiterate: this is what I stared at for most of the run:
Not that it is a bad view though…
Besides my view of my husband’s butt, it was gorgeous outside. The trail was very muddy in some areas as we had some showers about an hour earlier. It was really windy though! Thank goodness we finished our run when we did because it started hailing really badly right after we got done!
Kai always has to wait for us. I don’t think he understands why we can’t be as fast as him! Come on, mom!!!
Sigh. Beautiful. Yes, I know how lucky I am that this is literally 5 minutes running from my house.
After our little run together, I jumped on the trainer for an hour. I’ve got a run with a newbie tri club member from my spin class tomorrow!! I’m so excited to show her that this tri club will be the best thing to get her motivated!! And, they aren’t scary as I learned a couple of weekends ago.
I’m going to need your help with something next week, and I have an embarrassing confession to make. That on Monday!
I know that I’ve talked about running with my significant other before the blog. Do you run with yours? Or does he/she piss you off if you do?
P.S. I love you, honey!!
