Aaron Hewitt, former OrthoCarolina Physician Assistant, and marathoner coaches a weekly running group and is an advocate of training together. He incorporates sprint days, tempo days and long slow distance days into his team’s training plan to get race-day ready.
A training plan along with a dedicated group is helpful to keep runners accountable and motivated for races. Running with a group challenges normal tempo and pace, pushing runners to train differently. This can help runners reach goal times and increase mileage.
Hewitt adds interest to his running group by incorporating a few partner workouts to the routine. Below are three to try with your running group or partner.
