I'm visiting my parents in law, and my father in law is the kind of runner who does 10 km without blinking despite his 70 years of age.
He is proud of me, happy to see that I have taken up running, and he asked me to go with him on his morning run tomorrow and we agreed to do just 30-35 minutes.
I told him how slow I am. He seriously doesn't believe that a 44 year old can be that slow, and I'm afraid that it is going to be a horrible run where I try to keep up with him.
Please help me out here. How do I handle this situation?
UPDATE: My father in law tried to let me control the pace, but I couldn't help myself and ran much faster than my usual comfortable snail pace. Not pleasant... At one point I realised that I had to slow down or risk not making it. So I slowed down and I made the 3.5k and did a difficult hill at the end. It wasn't a pleasant run, but not too bad either.
