My Wife is Running!

It has been awhile since I posted a new topic. I have been in hibernation for too long. And for running, yes I still run, but not as many as I used to.

But probably the best news I have is that my running evangelical job has paid off. I was able to have my wife join me in my training.

For this year, I have re-organized my plan. Aside from just setting goals for myself, I have vowed to help my wife learn the sport of running. But there were several changes that took place. First was I need to dedicate time to pace with her during certain parts of the run. Second was I had to adjust my time with hers. Third, I get to act as coach even if I'm far from being capable. Fourth, I had to tuck in hard runs to at least maintain my fitness level, and the only way to do that is on evenings after work. Yeah its hard work, and there are times that I missed training because of work overtime. But then again, whenever I hear my wife in the morning wanting to run makes me feel I'm doing a great job.
