Not sure which to use on last nights first 2.5 miles of my 6.10 mile run.
The husband decided he wanted to run with me. Great!! I had a reason to run at a slower pace then I would had I went out on my own. I was actually looking forward to 'slacking off'. That is, until we got out on the pavement. OMG, seriously? This slow? I let the husband pace us since we both know I am the faster runner. He hates when we run together and I just take off. Staying with him for 2.5 miles was torture. I tried to be sympathetic since I knew his shins were bothering him, but I still ended up going ahead of him and then slowing back down for him to catch up. At 2.5 miles he cut it short and headed home and I continued on at a much faster pace for another 3.5 miles.
I start half marathon training on the 1st. I am using the intermediate program and super excited about it. I will make sure that the husband is only allowed to come with me on easy run days!!!
