I was supposed to go running yesterday, but for some reason I was rather tired and lacking in motivation (something to do with seeing in the New Year with copious quantities of Champagne, I fear). My other half commented on my lapse in get up and go (which is rich as his got up and went years ago). However he made a throwaway comment that if I ran today he would come out on his push bike with me. I thought he was joking, but this morning, as I leapt out of bed and into my running gear, he repeated the offer and started layering up ready for the slow cycle alongside me.
I was using the Stamina Podcast this morning on my hilly route, and it was good to have the company, spurring me on during the faster bits. I was even proud to be able to beat him up the hills.
Now to see if I can persuade him to come out for a Day After New Year's Day walk!!
