Eventually braved the SweatShop Running club this eve. Graduated 2 weeks ago and have down abut 6 x 30 min runs. I was assured it was for all abilities including new runners - I think I was somewhat misled!
As everyone started to turn up it was obvious they were all experienced runners
I was the only newbie
The back marker runner was great and stayed with me as everyone disappeared out of sight after 2 minutes. The two of us continued alone and even then had to cut the run short as it was too much for me. Feeling a bit disheartened. Will I be able to face going back next week??
