(not J and I )Today I was driving and I saw six different couples running together. At first, I thought nothing of it but then I started to get a little jealous. I wish that J and I could run together. When I was pregnant with L Boogie, we would talk about going on family runs and doing a 5k with the jogger. I was excited to be that kinda of family. J claims he came to his senses and remember he hates running. He used to run and now decided it is not for him. Although, I have accepted that we may never do that family 5k, I hold out hope that we will some.
Sparked by all the running couples, I decided to look up some articles about the benefits of working out together. I found this article about the benefits of workout together. I decided to make list for J of all the reasons we should workout together.
Here is the list:
Why the Smaileys Should Run Together:
Safety: You know I am klusty... I am bound to fall better to fall with you then alone.
Common Interest: L Boogie is a wonderful interest we share but we could use another!
Encouragement: You are the best cheerleader a girl could ask for and I can make up some great cheers for you!!
Quality Time: We could always use more time together...
A Deeper Bond: Studies show couples who exercise together have more sex... (hope that seals the deal)
He found the reasons somewhat compelling and agreed to give a try in the next couple of days. I will keep you posted.
Do you exercise with your partner? If not, do you wish you did?
