Finally...A Run with the Hubby

Today I really wanted to get in another run. We have more stormy weather in our forecast for Monday and Tuesday. We're heading to my sister's tomorrow for a family lunch, so it was either today or not again until Wednesday.

Jason agreed to go with me for 6 miles (it ended up being about 6.4). I had wanted to get started earlier than we did. It was getting hot and extremely humid out. It was also super windy, but the wind actually ended up being a blessing for the most part (other than running headlong into it and feeling like you were running in place).

I am fairly certain Jason thought I was trying to kill him today. Of course, he's the one who hasn't ran in several weeks. I enjoyed the run, mostly because we finally got to run together. I was one sweaty mess by the end though. My calves were really tight too. But, overall, I'll rank it as a B+ run.

When we got home, I took about 30 minutes to stretch and roll on my TriggerPoint Therapy Kit . It helped pull out some of the kinks, but calves are still really sore and my piriformis is achy.

While we should have hit up Target and the grocery store, we ended up on a patio with friends for a late lunch. No regrets though. We had a nice, relaxing afternoon. Funny story, you know how girls often worry about showing up wearing the same outfit, Jason and our friend's hubby had on the same shorts. It was sort of cute ;-) (sorry Jason, had to share)

We have plans to go over to our friends' house, along with another couple. They want to play one of those dance "games" on the kinect. Obviously I'm clueless. I am not certain there's enough alcohol to get me to do this, but I'm trying to be a good sport and at least go over there. I am planning on taking some hummus, maybe come up with another snack as well. What's funny is that I used to be that girl that was always up and dancing at the hint of a good song. Gettin' old.....

So, are you one to play along with the dance off games or do you just sit back and watch?


(and I apologize for the short post and lack of blog commenting. I'm trying to do myself and hubby a favor and slightly disconnect this weekend.)
