After feeling great with Week 5 Run 3 completed I thought that the next couple of runs would be like a walk in the park. That was until today when I went out at lunchtime to do Week 6 Run 1. It's not that I didn't complete it without stopping but I found it really hard work. Maybe I speeded up a little from my normal steady but slow (snail like) pace, or perhaps it was due to the really strong winds today but I can't say that it was the most enjoyable session that I've done so far.
However, it's the first time I've been out when it has been blowing hard and I'm not sure what was more difficult - the wind pushing you along from behind or hitting you in the face. If anyone has any suggestions when running in the wind I'd really appreciate some advice.
Hopefully by Saturday it won't be so bad and I can get some confidence back before Run 3 - YIKES!!!!
