Today, a co-worker joined me for my run at lunch. This is the first time I've run with him. The run started and he said he'd follow my pace. I went at my base pace and we ran for 45 minutes or 5.5 miles. The pace seemed light. We were able to hold a conversation the entire run. No problem...Right?
As I was leaving work, his co-worker started to berate me saying I pushed this individual too hard. I was surprised. I found out he had to go home early because he was too exhausted from his run. What!!!!???? I told his co-workers we ran easy. Here's the response: "Ya right, Iron Man!"
I'm still a bit surprised. Whoops...I guess. We'll see if he runs with me on Thursday.
