Ok the title is very mums net when they post silly questions. I have been doing some recovery runs as I twinged my Achilles and took time out, my stupid fault, I did a 14 km run in new shoes. Dumb! Anyhoo, getting back into it, going nice and slow listening for any pain. I run in my local park, the Thames path is asphalt, about 3 m wide and 1.5 km long. I am just easing into it, many people pass. A mum and her son who had passed me earlier stop up ahead, I carry on working away, and when I draw level they start running with me, right next to me. I sped up, they gave up. Now I gave up smoking last year and I run to manage anxiety. I felt pretty annoyed by this. Am I being unreasonable as I tend to give other runners a lot of space, for example I don't run side by side with someone I don't know, I go somewhere else. If it had been me, I would have waited a few seconds then set off.
