I should be back by then


Senior Member
hi everyone,

how would this translate best into french? i would appreciate formal and informal ideas.

the context is: i am talking with my girlfriend at our house about an event that will take place in the future at our house (e.g. we are supposed to have dinner at 7pm, and she's preparing it) and i say, "i'm going for a run, but i should be back by then."

my best shot:
je vais aller courir, mais je devrais être de retour avant alors
je reviendrai normalement avant 21 heures

thanks for your suggestions!
