Question: How do you train? Do you use a schedule, have a coach or go with the flow? Do you train alone or with group?
I'm a go-it-alone kind of gal. I did spend a lot of time looking for a group the last time I started running but no group went as slow as I ran, so I ran alone. I've just kept running alone ever since even though I've sped up since those days.
I use a schedule, usually from Cool Running, and work it to fit my life. I'm not glued to the schedule because as we all know - life happens. All my running is on the treadmill except for my weekend run and an occasional weekday run. I've never had a coach or a group. I'm not to the point that I want or need a coach, but a group would be good if I ever want to run more, a.k.a. farther or faster or both. I've really liked running with people through the Happy Runner's new runner's group, so I may have to look for people to run with in the future.
Shameless plug: If you haven't made it over to Shut Up and Run to vote for ADP, head over there and vote for the guy in orange. I know my hubby would greatly appreciate it.
