Usually, sure, but major life decisions like which school to attend need to acknowledge the fact that she may dump you the day after you start classes, so in this case you need to do what's right for you and not what you think might be right for a relationship that you have no guarantee will even last the whole time you're attending your program.

 

Even if it was a decision about taking a job, your process would make more sense, but that school will be at the top of your resume for the rest of your life.

Lol which is why if it was between Booth and Columbia I'd be fine with going to Booth, but no idea what I'd do if I get accepted to HBS/Wharton (meaning I'd probably accept but fucking hate doing the LD thing).

Dunno, but randomly deciding that she was going to take a completely different trajectory is her either reacting to the stress of potentially moving or trying to put distance there and/or test your resolve.

 

It's weird, especially if you've talked about it before because if she thinks she's in a really committed relationship then that's a conversation not just a decision. It seems that you'd talked to her about what all you were considering and she just up and made a decision re: this.

She just frames it by thinking she's doing the same thing as I am, i.e. choosing to go to school as non-negotiable, and that choosing to stay here for her is the same as choosing to move for me. So she's all like "you're getting mad at me for doing the same thing as you are" which makes no fucking sense at all.

And to me, like, if you're in a committed relationship you compromise to make it work, and a compromise would be me going to a school in a city she likes, and her coming with me and getting her life set up there, and I feel like she's just choosing her own life and decisions over the relationship but then she just comes back at me and says that I'm doing the same thing by going to school. She can't understand the difference. fucking girls man.

She must have a pretty high opinion of herself to think she's better than a place at Harvard. If it was some regular school of a similar standing to one where you already live then I can see where she's coming from, but if my girlfriend was offered a place at Harvard I'd move there with her no question.

What is so special about the town/city you live in now that she wants to go to that uni? Is it very well respected for dieticians?

I bet there are equally good places in boston/nyc/philly. All three of them are medical hubs.



It sounds like she has skewed notions of fairness or she's just feeling overwhelmed about things in general. The latter is more plausible.

If she becomes a dietician will she get you shredded?

What do you guys usually do for cardio?

I haven't done shit in about a year and I need to start. When I was living in CO I pushed/pulled the sled everywhere, but where I live now the grass is just way too soft and my sled just gets stuck in the dirt even without any added weight. Reason I ask: Just went to lift in the garage but the keys are locked in the car (my son was playing with the spare set and locked it) and I can't back it out of the gym, so I did some sprints instead and it sucked. 10 sprints, no idea how far (two telegraph poles, estimate about 200m) resting 90 seconds between. I need something to do like 2x week.

TLDR - I hate running and can't push the sled, any ideas for enjoyable cardio?

Mountain biking? Or even road cycling depending on where you are.

Wife is at work.

 

edit - I don't own a bike, but that is a good idea. I live in a pretty rural area in upstate/central NY so there's plenty of open spaces for it.

Yoga seems to do the trick, which is good since I hate running.

I also hate running. It just hurts and get my calves stiff, which affects my lifting. 

Biking is out, since it get my already tight quads, hip flexors and butt even tighter. I sit down enough as it is.

 

I just started to swim on rest days. Hadn't been to a swimming pool for a long time, and I can't say I'm good at swimming or even like it very much, but it was way nicer than any other form of cardio I've done. I've read some stuff about cardio for strength athletes since I've wanted to just get some basic conditioning, and swimming in particular is often recommended since its basically a no-impact form of cardio (no stifness or DOMS) and it involves all the muscles in whole body, unlike biking for instance. My local bath house has a sauna too which is good for recovery.

Lol. I was so confused when you said bath house. I was like, you go to a sauna in a brothel?
