training in the wind

It is very windy today which made for some difficult running, especially with my lack of overall fitness. When I started regretting coming out in these conditions I remembered that I used to tell those who trained with me that the wind is natures training partner working you out. The wind can make you work harder and become stronger and faster, and it can force you to slow down and work on pacing and feel.
Next time nature throws you a curve, thank it for making you a better runner or cyclist.

About runfaraz

I am a guy who loves to run marathons, and has been gifted with exceptionally slow genes which makes for mid pack finishes in races. If I don't run I become an unbalanced manic fool, so yes...running is my prozac. I believe that the key to a happy productive life is balance. Balance in all areas of your life. If one area is out of balance, all others go out of balance. Come back often as I love to see the hit counter go up!!! View all posts by runfaraz
