I see right through your strategy - actually you're trying to get some time to yourself :)
Haha. I was going to write that, but didn't think it looked very nice.
Reminds me of a man l knew who was a good cross country skier and trained every day. After his divorce and subsequent marriage to a new wife, l don't think he ever trained again!
Haha, I don't go running to escape my spouse but rather to give him some peace & quiet away from me...
I know some spouses who literally kick their partners out the door just to get some me-time.
