I'm aware I'm going into a bit of a posting frenzy after my long absence, but I promise this will be my last new topic post!!
I recently started seeing a new guy (this is where we all cheer and do a little happy dance). We were dating for about a month or so and got together officially about 5 weeks ago (although he's been on holiday abroad for 2 of those, lol).
As per my last post, havent been able to exercise for that period of time as I had an operation. I'm just starting to get back into light exercise now (at the gym, pah), but nothing heavy and nothing impact based. However, as I get into marathon training that isobviously going to change. I'm buying a bike tomorrow and am going to start commuting into work, which will help a bit, and then I can start getting back into running properly (I just started a run walk programme that I am going to be taking slowly for the next few weeks as I want to be sensible).
However, my boyfriend is the kind of guy who wouldn't run 50m for a bus, let alone any kind of seriosu exercise! He loves eating out, etc, etc. Since he lives only 20 mins away, and we work in the same building, we have got into the habit of meeting after work and going for dinner, or going out, or meeting up later in the evening.
This is all a long winded way of saying how do you guys balance having a relationship with someone who utterly is not interested in sport (but supportive none the less) and training for something serious, like a marathon, or triathlon (I would quite like to try for the Vit next September). I'm worried how to fit everything in, and spending time with my boyfriend. My last boyfriend was a long distance relationship, so it didn't matter what I did most of the time, as we were both busy and saw each other every month or so (so I could basically run whenever I felt like it/wanted to).
Any advice is really gratefully received.
