Tonight, I headed out for a quick 3 mile run with the hubby. He is still fairly new to this whole running thing and runs faster than I do, but take a lot more walk breaks. So we typically start out together with him leading, then he runs/walks well I continue on. I wait for him at the same points each run.
As we approached our typical turn around point, I wanted to go just a little farther, so I sent him to make our typical one block triangle and head back toward home... while I continue on for a half mile loop. Our plan was for me to meet up with him along "Dermond Ave" somewhere. Well as I was heading back I noticed that it was really "Marvine Ave" that we run down. Dermond was one block over. I was hoping that he realized what I meant. I mean it was our typical route.
Well apparently somewhere on the 2 remaining sides of the triangle that he had to go himself, he got lost. Eventually, he found Dermond and continued towards home. I was running down Marvine looking ahead for him, while he is running down Dermond looking behind for me.
Well I made it to the school where we usually meet up and was confused why he wasn't there. So I headed to Dermond and ran back towards him for 5/6 blocks. Then I figured I took too long and he headed home (with our only key). So I headed home, hoping that he would be there. Nope. I left my headband on the door knob and headed back out to look for him.
I was getting slightly worried that he was hurt. I continued down Dermond looking for him, made a big loop and came back up Marvine. There was my hubby waiting on the corner near the school for me.
He had been there for 5 minutes of so... Meanwhile I ran an extra 1.3 miles around looking for him.
So the hubby ran 2.9 miles and I ran 4.2 miles. That man drives me crazy! But at least I got in a good run.
