Today was the first long run I’ve been able to go on since ATB training commenced. Oops! I was so happy that Rachel could come over and look after Logan so that we could get a solid 8 miles in.
The weather was nice and sunny but insanely windy! I’m talking really windy….at some points in our run I could’ve sworn I heard Aunty Em screaming for Dorothy!
…but we could obviously standstill for an instagram pose
The first 4k/2 miles were directly into 50km/hr winds! and I forced Colin to stop to walk a few times as I felt like running was just wasting my energy.
Once we hit the stairs and found the trail all was great The trees provided awesome cover and we had the majority of our run together covered and safe from the crazy winds.
My feet keep bothering me but I made it through. Colin kept encouraging me and we picked up the pace when we got passed by a bunch of older women.
Colin kept the pace and slowed me down, which I was thankful for by the end of our run when we returned up the mountain to the treacherous winds. I have never been more grateful that a run was over.
However I am SO glad I got out there! I’ve been feeling really lax about fitness lately and I’m really glad I finally forced myself to do some training. 30km’s aren’t going to run themselves and it’s time I started taking my training seriously.
I loved running with my husband though! Seriously – anyone reading this who’s partner doesn’t run – show them this post and tell them Ali Mc says forcing spouses to run together is so beneficial……
….just look at us
Tomorrow morning I plan on returning to morning workouts and going back to my regular fitness-obsessed self.
If I make an excuse – feel free to yell at me
what was your run this weekend??? anyone racing??
have you ever fallen out of love with fitness??
nope, this time was a first for me. I literally couldn’t be less interested. So I’m forcing. Get me excited!!!
name 3 things that happened to you since we last spoke??
Colin and I shared a romantic dinner together and watched Predator for his bday, I watched the rest of Gossip Girl and only have the finale left! I had a great interview with the bank and hope to hear good news this week *cross fingers*
