Second run with my friend this morning it was week one run 3 for her. Def got her hooked going out again on Friday. I'm going to try run with her twice a week as it's a 30 mile round trip each time, so need to try keep the costs down also it gives her the chance to run on her own which is important, we covered 2.85km in the 28 minutes so that's including the walks. She found it easier than her first two runs. All good stuff. Loving the chance to sort my posture out on these slower runs, it really is terrible how much I slouch when I run.
And now to the oh no what have I done part.
Also had a breakthrough with my other half. He is overweight but has refused point blank to run with me. It holds no interest to him whatsoever. But I constantly tease him and try to get him to come to races with me. Knowing that he always no. But........... Last night as we were watching the commenwealth games closing ceremony, I'm thinking that it was all the medal talk that has sparked something in him. I found a spartan run online in edinburgh, he loves all things do with this era, so I teased as usual saying 'ooohhh but you could win this prize'
But all of a sudden he took an interest, and somehow..... We only had one glass of wine... .??
Somehow.... We have ended up making a team of 4 (with said friend from today's run and a friend of my other halfs) have all agreed to enter this insane race. If you've not heard of it, google it. I am so scared lol
I am now utterly terrified, we are going to do it next year to give us all a chance to really sort our fitness out.
Eeekkkkkkk !!!!!!!!! I've created a load of monsters.....
