Anyway, we are planning a marathon again early next Spring so we're trying to get lot of miles in so that we can get in good shape and hopefully PR. My buddy is a pretty decent 5K / 10K and struggles a but more with the 26.2 than me and he has hit the wall a couple of times including his last marathon where he finished the last 10K in something like 50 mins when he had been running 6:30's.
On a call with him the other night, we were talking about our marathon prep and discussing how we hopefully manage to both run solid times. However, I mentioned to him that it may well be hot and humid on race day and that a lot of people collapsed last year in the last few miles. We've got a similar sense of humour so what I actually said to him was 'you can definitely expect there to be a shed load of bonking going on at the end of that marathon next year'
Of course, my wife just happened to hear that last part of the phone conversation and took it mean that we are looking to hook up post marathon for a bit of female R & R. She's not a runner by any means so has not idea what 'to bonk' means.
She's always thought that my running has been about getting in shape to try and score with attractive, athletic women and now this has really convinced her of this.
What the h*ll can I do to convince her that I'm just in love with running?
