Date Night

Chris and I used to make Wednesday nights our weekly date night at the track, but it’s been a very long time since that happened!   

Chris really wanted to go to the track this week, so I decided to go with him.  It’s a rare occasion these days when our schedules align to be able to work out together, so I definitely try to take advantage when it happens.   

Like a perfect gentleman, he picked me up after work and escorted me to the track.

We did a couple mile warm up together, did some drills, then got going into a set of intervals.  Chris hasn’t done speed work in a while (and neither have I!) so we decided on a simple set of 6 800s with 200 recovery.

Off we went!

I broke out the shoes finally for the occasion.

I could tell during drills I wasn’t going to last very long.  My leg still isn’t feeling 100% when I try to run fast (and I ran 11 miles the night before), so I decided to call it quits after my first 2 800’s.  Meh.  I have a massage scheduled tomorrow and have been going to ART to help work through it, it’s just taking some time to get back into the fast stuff.   

I cooled down and stretched enjoying the spring evening while Chris finished up his set.

Of course I was all dressed up in my best date attire.

This is what changing into running clothes at work looks like – So. Many. Bags.

To finish off date night, after dinner we took these cute butts for a walk.  Yes they must walk side by side.

Definitely a successful date night in our house!

    Did you like those shoes? I have been thinking about getting a pair of lighter shoes for my shorter races. I love the pink.

    What a perfect date night. I wish I could find a man who would agree to do something like that.

    I’ve never seen dogs walk like that, so adorable.

    good for you for being smart and calling it quits when your leg bothered you! i can’t wait until the rocketship is all healthy again, I’m totally making him do date nights at the track with me!

    I think puppy butts are hilarious. How did you like the shoes?

    • Aron June 9, 2011 at 9:54 am #

      Liked them so far! Will be doing a review after some more wears in them. Definitely different from the 2150s I am used to!

      • katie June 9, 2011 at 9:56 am #

        Hmmm, I wear the 2150s as well, so I will be anxiously waiting to hear what you have to say. They are adorable, if nothing else. :)

  20. Megan June 9, 2011 at 2:32 pm #

    Ack! Feeling guilty for not going to track night yesterday. That’s when we do it, too. I love your dogs’ walking style. Too funny!!

    Awww. That sounds like a great date night.

  22. Jessica June 10, 2011 at 6:22 am #

    I change into my running gear at school a lot and I’m lucky if I can make it through the door with all the bags I have. Luckily, there’s always a student around who will hold the door open for me.

    Great date night!

  24. Allison June 10, 2011 at 10:55 am #

    [...] Date night at the track!  Did a couple mile warm up, then tried to get some 800s in but didn’t want to push my cranky quad/IT band/hip/whatever it is, so I cooled down and kept the day easy. [...]
