Chris and I are both leading very busy lives right now and our schedules are often conflicted. He has been avoiding running on roads for a while now since he is still battling a foot injury, but somewhere in the last month I talked him into running trails with me and it’s been so so great. Not only do I want (and need) a trail running partner, but it gives us a chance to catch up in the middle of our busy lives, where we aren’t distracted by anything in the house and can just be out in the hills running and talking and exploring.
Plus the views aren’t bad either.
Monday night we headed out to the mountain the same way we went the first time, but we found a couple of new trails to run on. It’s so nice having someone to run with so I am not second guessing everything and being nervous to run somewhere new. We go off exploring different trails and if they don’t work out, we just turn around.
Lucky for us some definitely work out.
We just did a short 3+ mile run that night, but it was a perfect way to start the week.
Somehow our schedules aligned again for Thursday night and we were able to have a week of double Diablo date nights! This time we started at a different park and tackled some different trails. There were some tough super steep climbs and some fun single track. We were back at the car 5 miles later just as the sun set.
I am loving the freedom in my workout schedule right now. It’s so nice to run just because I want to and to be able to work with Chris’s schedule too. Nothing beats getting quality date time in while also getting in a good run.
