Hi fast folk!
Here we are already in Week 3 of the Challenge!! How are you all doing?
There have been some amazing results reported so far, notably Decker and Bluebirdrunner - check em out here:
I was tempted to go out on Saturday and get Storm Erik behind me. It feels a bit like cheating, but in fact a tailwind can provide useful training:
"Run With the Wind: Have fun with it. Harness the power of the wind and use it to train for speed. Although the energy lost in running against a headwind doesn't equally match the benefits of a tailwind, you will run slightly faster and can use it to focus on stride rate, stride length and turnover. Head out on a point to point run with the wind entirely at your back. You will feel like an Olympian and smile the entire time!"
Seems reasonable to me 😊
I always used to avoid running in the wind, in fact in one of my earliest posts on Health Unlocked I am complaining about it:
But nowadays I go out in pretty much any weather. It's just as well really, since it's usually pretty windy where I live!
Anyway, for now we don't seem to have any storms around here - hooray! I hope you have a great week of speedy running, and don't forget to post your results here!
