I contacted the Edinburgh running network to find out a bit more about the club. It sounded good and quite social. They do a couple of runs during the week and 10 milers on Sundays. I asked about the kinds of paces they run, and the organiser said they usually run at 8:30 pace on their 5 mile weekday runs, but on the long weekend runs, faster runners sometimes go off ahead. I'm wondering if it is worth me joining. I mean, would you expect there to be some fast runners there that are happy to run at 6min pace. I mean I don't know how I would feel about doing short runs at 8:30 pace. I don't think I've ever ran that slowly before. Then again, it might be nice to just treat it as a social event and meet some new people. I'm undecided.
