The other day I posted my struggles with spelling due to a certain rapper. This is absolutely my husband's influence. My sister even mentioned in her maid of honor speech at our wedding that one of Eric's positive influences on me was my new found love of rap. I guess that influence goes both ways, because when I went to bed last night, there were no brownies. Actually, much to my regret, there was no chocolate in the house whatsoever.
When I woke up, there was this.
|In his defense, there were a few brownies left, but he took them to work.|
I really don't know how I slept through brownies baking, especially since I hadn't even had any dessert myself.
I had big plans last night to ride the trainer. Eric is usually not home when I ride (hence the Felicity entertainment). It's extremely loud - think trying to watch TV while using the vacuum cleaner, so I decided to get his input on the entertainment I'd be blasting for 90 minutes. I texted him to ask if he wanted to watch the new Justin Timberlake movie. He thought I meant this one.
|Looks nice and guy friendly, right?|
I meant this one, because I didn't even know about "In Time".
|I highly recommend you watch this movie immediately.|
The time on the trainer flew by, particularly the parts where JT was topless, and for all his whining Eric was hysterically laughing and almost cried when I was done and we had to pause the movie so I could shower. My sister gave him one of his favorite all time movies, Bride Wars, for Christmas, so I'm not sure why he ever opposed my movie choice. We are watching the other JT movie tonight - can't really ever get enough JT, can you?
Seriously, I had plans to see Bride Wars in the theater with my girl friends, and he asked me if he could come along, and now he has memorized every line.
That means that yesterday, I finally followed through on my plan for a two-a-day. Swimming in the morning, biking in the evening. I feel like the Half Ironman training has actually begun, even though it was all indoors. In other news, I took a closer look at my current training plan, and realized it calls for workouts that will take me 2.5 to 3 hours to complete - on weekdays. Several times a week. I don't know if this is normal for Half Ironman plans, but I don't really see that happening for me. I knew training was going to be a huge time commitment, but that just seems unrealistic. I found another plan that seems much more reasonable, so I'm switching. I'd link to them, but the old one is just a printout my friend gave me and the new one is saved at work, and I don't think anyone cares. If anyone has experience though, let me know that level of training is normal and my new plan is only for slackers.
I have a 20 mile run planned for tomorrow, and then I guess it's time to taper for the Myrtle Beach Marathon! Crazy. I have no idea how it got here so fast.
If you live with your significant other, what things have you rubbed off on each other?
