I have a similar situation with the slow specs being integration specs
in a special directory. I tagged all those example groups and setup two
guards. The first is for unit tests and ignores all examples tagged
'integration' and doesn't watch spec/integration. The second guard just
watches spec/integration and runs only examples tagged 'integration'.
Haven't used it much yet, though.

cheers,
