Everyone else is way faster!! How to train in group?

I worked up to week five of C25K prior to February.  I did not run in Feb, March.  Have started back and had several friends who want to start C25K.  I started with week one with them, going by the time, not distance.  They are way ahead of me after running the one minute, then walking for 90 seconds.  However, I am able to run up to five minutes without having to go back to walking and they are breathless after the one minute.  I am new to running overall.  Is this a difference in pace?  How should i train with these other ladies?  Do I try to match their pace?
