as for differences in pace - this can a good things or it can be a bad thing:
- sometimes if you're running with a person who is faster, it can be a help to you in quickening your pace and learning to run faster.... this is a needed pace if you are wanting a faster 5K or 10K race time
- and if you're running with a person who is slower, it can help you in learning to 'slow it down'... this is a needed pace if you are wanting to run a marathon
you don't have to run with someone who has the exact same pace
. . . . train with SOMEONE . . . "It may seem odd to hear a coach say this, but I think a really great training partner is more important than a coach." - Joan Nesbit, coach and world-class runner . . . . ANYONE . . . "Never underestimate the value of a good training partner, even if it's your dog. Training allies will get you out the door on those days when exercise might otherwise be reduced to a finger on the remote control button." - Runner's World editors
. . . . but sometimes go SOLO "The day after a hard workout, I always train alone. If you run with someone else, there can be a tendency to push harder than you should." - Mark Allen, former Ironman champion ____________ the above running tip i recently found in a menís health article, but sure they are the same tips that were published in runners world some time ago pdq
