RP is a new member of staff at the gym and has not done more than 10k - but is entered for Robin Hood half!!
so we went out today for a 2 hour plod - by her 10k pace she is quicker than me, but does not have the endurance
so for the first 5 miles she was tootling along chatting away and I was keeping up
but after 5 miles she began to find it harder - and as we were doing run a mile walk a minute (or two) she was asking 'surely the mile is up'
so we could be quite good for each other - she'll pull me a long - and I'll help her get out the door and help her endurance
we will probably only meet once a week for a long run, but that means I can do my long run off road along cycle tracks - which is much better :>)
so a positive outcome
here's the data (if blogger is behaving)
so, it was slow, but included a few pauses to stretch during our "walk a minute" minute
