I've always wanted to have a workout friend.
In college, when time was on our side, my husband and I would lift weights together and take long walks along country roads. Later, in graduate school, I had a friend who lifted weights with me too; he was great, always yelling at me to push myself harder, but in a friendly way. More recently, I convinced a friend to go to the 5:30 a.m. class with me, but she only lasted a couple of months (although even that was pretty impressive given that she had a 2.5 year old and a 1 year old at the time.)
With the new year, comes a new try. Today I have a new workout friend: my 70+ mother-in-law. We plan to walk and talk. This probably won't get my heart rate going as I will follow her pace, but I plan to strap some weights on my ankles and enjoy the companionship. Then maybe do something more strenuous too.
Do you have a workout friend?
