Yesterday my husband decided that although we can't run together every session for childcare reasons, he wanted to come out with me today and start his own Couch25K. This threw me a bit as I was sort of getting used to the idea of going on my own and didn't know if I would try to run too fast or anything in front of him.
I was a bit tense initially as I had to wait in my running gear for ages getting nervous and hungry while he was stuck in traffic coming back from dropping off our little girl at my mum's.
Anyway, as it turned out I did quite enjoy running with him. We didn't do a very good job of synchronising podcasts so he was starting his runs a bit earlier than me, but at one point he brisk walked in a circle for a while so that I could catch him up! We seemed to be about the same speed, but as it was his first run, I imagine that he will get faster than me. I ummed and ahhed about staying longer on week 1 so that we could be at the same point in the programme, but decided not to wait in case I have to repeat any of the later runs. I am also too impatient to finish the course, but I do feel rather mean! It will be most annoying that we have to do two runs a week on different days now! I hope that he keeps with it!
Today's W1R3 seemed fairly hard again, but not unbearable. I didn't feel sick until the cool down walk this time!
It might sound strange/impossible, but although I have only done 3 run/walks, I feel a tiny bit more toned! Or rather less untoned!
