About a month ago I came up with a goal to get in better shape this year and really want to be able to run a 5k by the end of year.
I've started training and I'm already bout 1/3 of the way there!
My wife now wants to start training with me. I think it's great. She's never been a runner before and now among everything else, we get to share this venture together. But my dilemma is how to go about training now. She's not going to be able to keep up with me at first. So when she needs to stop jogging and just walk, do I walk with her and wait for her to build up her strength or do I jog ahead without her so I can keep moving towards my goal? And what if she twists her ankle or something and she needs to stop altogether for a while. Do I just put my goal of running a 5k on hold for this year?
