Today's run; Who needs an ipod?

Sunday, April 17, 2011

If you've been reading along this week, you'll know that I've been trying to shake up the exercise to keep things fresh. Today was super fun for me (as fun as running can be). I asked my husband to get on the bike and be my pacer as I ran. He's always at work when I run except the one race back in March where he was at the finish line. So I got his company, his antics, and my own personal soundtrack while he got to see me "working my butt off"- literally!!!
It was nice to have him manning the time for me, and yes he sang "Eye of the Tiger" for me as I pushed to finish that last mile. 4 miles tonight, 3.1 of that was logged as a virtual 5K on Spark. I did my best time ever, and I know part of that was just wanting to show off for him.
He's impressed. I'm sweaty and ready for a shower. So that wrapped up my "Fun week of exercise"!
Thanks for listening. Keep on Sparking, my Friends.

    Sounds like you've got a great hubby. Good for you, Roxanne. I doubt I could walk 4 miles, never mind run 4 miles.

    Sounds like a lot of fun and some great time with hubby! I can also relate to the "Eye of the Tiger".......I have a few Rocky fans in my house.
