After watching me run for 3 months (and going out once in a while with me as a cheerleader), my partner J has decided to do the program himself for real, from the beginning. I am thrilled beyond words! And I would love to support him and/or share some of this with him.
Here's the problem: he is naturally fast, and I am super slow. He has always been able to keep up with me on my runs by just walking alongside, or perhaps falling behind a little bit and jogging a moment to catch up - while I run continuously. I haven't any hope of running fast enough to keep up with him, and he wants to actually run at his natural speed. And it isn't a small difference - he could possibly be fully twice as fast as me, or nearly so.
Any ideas how I can participate or support his efforts? Unfortunately, I don't think I can bicycle alongside, because I tend to have frequent bike accidents. (And I can't ask him to slow down. The point of this is that he wants to learn to run himself.)
