My husband has off on Wednesdays as do I, so we like to plan things to do together on our day off. So yesterday I woke up and asked him if he would like to go to the gym with me. I was surprised when he said yes.
I typically strength train on Wednesdays with a friend from the gym. Lately, no matter how exhausted we are from the weight session, we will run 3 to 4 miles afterwards since we are both training for a 25K in May. I asked my husband if he wanted to join us for either or both activities and he kindly responded no. He wanted to do his own thing which was fine. I really liked knowing that he was out here somewhere working up a sweat too. At one time I didn't see him out on the floor and I joked with my workout partner that he probably left to go get coffee from Starbucks. :o)
I have been a member at my gym for almost 6 years now. Since he has been so busy finishing up his graduate degree, it wasn't really worth it for him to have a membership. Now that he has graduated maybe it is time for him to join?
(He did tell me he was sore today...the good kind of sore!)
Do you strength train/run/swim/bike/do yoga with your significant other?
