Training alone or together?

I know this has come up before but the search function has failed me...

Just thought this was an interesting article:

For me I almost always train alone, but as an ex rower I'm pretty sure that I trained harder and with more discipline with my crew than I do now.


  • Definitely better together. I always run, swim, bike faster when I have a partner. I try and enlist as many friends as possible into my training. Some drop out, but I'm always on the look out for another training partner so Inevitably someone else eventually takes their place. you also learn a lot from other athletes as they have inevitably done something different to you. My swimming got much better when I started going with a friend - we spurred each other on to go faster and longer.
