Back in October I volunteered to help lead my club's beginners programme for 2004 (every Sunday, Feb-May). S0d's Law being what it is meant I then got a ballot place for FLM.
I would still quite like to help with the beginners who will be starting from scratch doing walk/run and will be up to about 4 miles by marathon day.
At the moment I'm thinking of doing half my long run, then escorting the beginners, then finishing my long run, but am a little concerned that this will reduce the effectiveness of the long run. What do you think?
(Doing my long run on Saturday is not really an option by the way)
