Dating and Physical Fitness

I date a very nice guy who also happens to be incredibly physically fit!

Here he is 😉

At the Chestertown 10 miler

He is a talented runner who not only runs fast, but far and often too. He is the type of guy who NEVER misses a workout!

Do I love and admire this about him?!! Absolutely.

Am I thrilled to have running and fitness in common with him? Of course, I mean there is SO much to talk about!

We can talk about all of our workout goals and he gives me great feedback.

However, as with most things, there is always a but isn’t there?

Most of the time I am up for my run but I also strength train on each of the days that I run. Herein lies my desire (especially lately) to just pack up and head home.

I won’t bore you with the probable cause of this new desire other than to say that a new piece of equipment has TAKEN OVER an entire room at the gym that I do my strength training in. Ugh!!

I love working out but I am the first to admit that I am guilty of letting certain things negatively affect my workout be it general moodiness, a bad day at work, lack of motivation, or a change in environment.

Cue the encouraging boyfriend who always responds to my desire to phone in a workout with, “just do a little bit and see how you feel.”  He is totally a glass half full type of guy which is awesome, but it can be challenging when I want to skip my workout.


In other news, I am still on the spinning/body pump kick.

Monday-6 miles

Tuesday-6.50 miles

Wednesday-Spin 45min followed by Body Pump

Thursday-6.25 miles


Sunday planning to take the HIIT class at the YMCA.

That will give me my 5 days/week and then I need to start incorporating some long runs in my life for my upcoming half in April.

Seemed like a good idea in December 😉
