How can I "break up" with my workout buddy?
When I first started going to the gym my friend decided to join with me. It was nice to have a buddy to there while I got used to it and figured things out. But now I have realized that I very much prefer to workout alone.
The problem is that my friend refuses to go alone. She has health issues and has been ordered by her doctor to lose weight. She has lost 10 pounds so far. She is also having her second knee surgery next week and the doctor wants her to continue working out. If I tell her I don't want to go with her anymore I am 98% sure she will just quit going and I really don't want her to do that.
So should I just suck it up and deal? I'm trying to find a happy medium, but I usually go to the gym 3 days a week and jog 3 days a week. She can't jog because of her knee problems and she doesn't want to "waste money" to go to the gym 1 or 2 times a week. Does anyone have any ideas or advice? I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!
