Since my husband and I run together, if he "isn't into it", then I don't get a quality run in either...or at all. I do train separately, but prefer to run with someone for the long trail runs.
JIMS TOUGH YEAR
Tough walk/run to finish
And he had Plantar Fasciitis
And he repetitively sprained his ankle.
And he was working 6 days/week all year
And he was having difficulties running more than 3 hrs b4 feeling ill
CONFIDENCE BOOST Happy Running Again!!
-Active work on ankle rehab
-Consume enough calories EVERY hour- duh! My mantra to him was "when you feel the least like eating is probably when you should be eating the most!"
-Drink enough water - another duh! But is is finally following 'what to do' with great results. He's ornerey, but is learning :)
So now he is excited again for another 50K. YAAY! - Now I have someone to join me in my enthusiasm for races !!! Now he wants to do a 5-6 hr full DV 50k practice run next weekend.
- I'm in !!
