The Things I Do For My Husband: explained
I feel the need to explain my previous post.
I had just come in from my run with Jordan and the amount of hate and dissatisfaction I was feeling was pretty intense, hence the bitter and cold-hearted post.
Yesterday it was suggested to me, by my wonderful husband, that we start running together. *insert unamused face here* He knows how much I loathe the activity, but he also knows how much I love spending time with him being active- walks, tennis, hikes, pretty much anything besides running. This suggestion put me in quite the dilemma. Here Jordan is, trying to be nice by coming up with a physical activity for us to do together, couple time (get your mind out of the gutter!). But it’s an activity I never ever wish to participate in. What to do, what to do?
Well, needless to say, I sucked it up and went running with him. It’s now a daily activity we plan on doing together. Sometimes being selfless really sucks.
I wish I didn’t hate running so much. It’d make our new activity much more enjoyable. It’s just that I get zero satisfaction out of running. None. I don’t feel accomplished or good or empowered or anything. I just feel unamused, and I don’t want my workouts to feel that way-so I simply just don’t use running(besides sprints) as a form of exercise.
I’ll take what I can get, though. Sacrificing my likes and dislikes for Jordan and Carmela time will pay off…I hope.
