I have been running alone (c25k) or with hubs. I like having a running partner but, there is a big but. Hubs has run 22yrs as part of his career, training weekly and running events in the past. His current 5k would be about 26 mins whereas mine is 31 mins. We have tried going out at my slower pace but he always ends up going slightly faster with me running behind, trying to push to keep up. I feel like each run is a speed session and not so enjoyable. We have done longer distance with me at 10k and him bailing at 9k so far. Today he has said he cannot run so slow as it gives him cramp and funnily enough I cannot just speed up (oh I wish I could). So today we are no longer running partners. Back to solitary running again. It would be so nice to have a partner in crime.
