Just wondering if anyone else has met with a negative or "passive aggressive" reaction from their other halves since starting the plan? I have to admit, part of my motivation for starting was listening to my partner (a former very dedicated runner) go on for weeks after weeks that he would pick up running again "when the spring comes/when I'm less busy with work/when it stops raining" (we're in Manchester so like that'll ever happen). One day we were looking at the C2K plan and I just stood up and said, "I'm starting it now" and that afternoon I died running the 60 second death runs of Week 1 Run 1!
Now I'm really enjoying being at Week 6 Run 3. I love the time and headspace it gives me from a fairly full on home situation. Yet the reaction I get when I come red faced through the door shouting, "yes! I did 20 minutes!!!" has been akin to me telling me his gerbil has just died..... is this resentment that I'm actually doing what he's talked about doing for so long - and hasn't? Resentment that he has to take care of our son for the 35 mins I'm out the house? Or is it that general sabotage I've read about eg when people go on successful weight loss programs, start feeling better about themselves, other person feels somehow put out? Sorry for waffling; I'd just like someone important to me, to be (or at least try to be!) enthusiastic for me! Thank goodness for all the positive vibes from you guys on here!!!
