I do one of my three weekly c25k sessions during Parkrun, one with a friend and one on my own. My friend is much fitter than me but is happy to slow down to my pace for the c25k session. It's lovely running with her, she is so supportive and we have a good laugh.
I enjoy my solo session, going out early in the morning and always come home feeling a sense of achievement.
Parkrun is usually fun as well even though I am always one of the last to finish, but I know as I progress through c25k I will get stronger and faster and it's giving me something to aim for.
All good so far. But, and I don't want to sound mean and nasty,a very nice lady I have recently met keeps asking if she can join me on my morning run, and wants to come with me and my friend on our evening session. She is a really nice person but I always feel that I have to be on my best behaviour with her as she's quite serious. I like my own company and don't want to have to share that little bit of me time on my morning run. We haven't got a lot in common and it's beginning to make me uncomfortable that she's trying to tag along with several things I do.
Am I just a mean minded beast? 😕
