Running Just as Fast As I Can...

Friday, August 19, 2011

Last night when I set out for my run - hubs looked at me and said - I wouldn't have eaten so much for dinner if I knew you were going - I would have gone with you.....

Hubs was who got me into running back in 96 and we ran together until kids, but since kids only a handful of times. I run more now.....who would have thunk????

Any way - I looked at him and told him my 1/2 training called for 3 miles last night - but if he wanted to run with me, I'd do Thursdays run on Wednesday and do the 3 with him Thursday.....he said OK.

Fist let me set a size scale...me 5'4", hubs 6'3".....so I take 2 steps for one of his when we run....

So - he gets home from work and starts pulling crab grass and procrastinating and I finally say - if we are going you need to change.....to which he says - I was kidding - and I say - NO WAY ....I made my week harder for you doing all longer runs back to back, so I had 3 tonight....

so he changed, and off we went....I let him set the pace, which was a pretty good clip - and we did the three in 28 minutes and change....whoo hooo. as we are walking back to the house after our cool down, I commented on our sub 10 min. pace, and he said - I was letting you pace....and I said I was letting you pace.....to which he laughed and said good thing I didn't realize, because I would have slowed down.....(sometimes they don't listen)...

Anyway - we went in - had water, stretched, and I started cooking dinner.....he laid down on the floor.....and then he started talking to my 12 yr. old and said, "Your mother tried to kill me tonight...."

Ha....that felt good, because back in 96 I thought he was trying to kill me!
