Hi forum friends. i have a big decision to make. I need your help to straighten my thoughts.
Our group of runners at the Club is disintigrating. The fast guys are becoming faster but they don't wait for the slower people, which has resulted in the slower people running on their own and becoming despondent. The group will have to split into two - slower and faster. At present, i run with the fast guys to train to run faster. However, on a trainig night, when the hard work has been done, i go back, extending my warm down run to pick up the slower people running at the back (they can be as much as a mile behind).
If/when the group splits do i go on training with the fast group (for my benefit), or do i start to train with (and end up coaching) the slower group?
I already take one group of beginners out, so only have one good fast training session a week... but i have a lot of friends in the slower group.
What should i do????
