My mate Paul is a runner (he's the thin one). He can do 10k in 40 minutes and parkrun in less than 20. 'Let's go for a run' he said in the pub last night. Stupidly perhaps, I agreed.
We did my usual week 9 route in the valley which should take me exactly 30 minutes after the warm-up walk. Took it nice and easy and chatted the whole way. In the end we did it faster than my week 9 runs, and Paul's watch produced reams of stats about pace, fastest km etc which I found fascinating.
That's the first time I've run with company and I really enjoyed it, so give it a try if you get the chance.
