Ir's 4:30 in the morning and another sleepless night. Just looking for some advice.
I've been with my partner for eight years and one thing that bought us together is the love of all things to do with cycling, running and swimming. She had ran several marathons before I had met het and had done a few triathlons .
Eight years on we both run, but we don't share the love and passion for it. We're both doing the Paris marathon, and we have a few smaller halves entered. I'm a strong believer in active recovery, cross training, core work but she's adamant that she won't do any as she has a RW marathon programme that does not tell her to do any of this and that RW is right and I'm wrong. She's not interested in any Parkruns or any races I may suggest. She dismisses everything I suggest, and she no longer cycles, or swims.
I feel we've partly got into this situation partly because of a RW marathon schedule.
It would be great to hear from the editor that there are benefits for cross training, active recovery, core work, gym work, proper nutrition ( she says she's old school and would rely on just water to do a marathon ) and what to do when a passion we once shared is tearing us apart.
