Pesky wind



No not that kind of wind.

Decided that this afternoons run would be 3 x 2 mile loops as hard and as fast as my legs felt up to. The wind had other ideas however. Pesky wind. As I headed in to the wind it rendered me almost stationary (not difficult) I persevered on as much as could happy in the thought that with running a loop it would soon be behind me, this was not to be. I completed lap one and when I expected the wind to be aiding my run it did not as I was sheltered it seemed by bushes. After the second lap I had a ‘lightbulb’ moment, I’ll fix you Mr Wind, I decided to run in an anticlockwise direction. Surely this would help. No. At the point where the headwind had been the strongest the ground was at its steepest gradient (cancelling any assistance) and the breeze (yep had now it seemed gone from wind to breeze) just blew gently cooling me off not blowing me along as I hoped. Pesky wind. Mileage done not as fast as wanted but done. Pesky pesky wind.

Fed family of 8 tonight, we were celebrating Father’s Day a week early. Food was good (well I did the cooking so goes without saying) company fun (family mad) and service great (hubby cleared up)

Totals for day 12

1 hour in gym

6 miles run


About shazruns

I have been running since 2004 when I decided to do the Race for Life, as a close friend was terminally ill with cancer. Following that I did a couple of 10km at Leeds castle and Sandringham. Then in 2005 ran my first London marathon, then another in 2007 in blistering temperatures. I have entered the London marathon every year since but have been rejected, am now find maintaining my fitness & motivation hard, so when the email came through about Janathon I thought why not! Am hoping this helps with fitness, motivation and weight loss!! Wish me luck!

  1. Pesky but not so pesky it stopped you running. You’re very inspiring 🙂

    An hour in the gym, a 6 mile run and dinner for 8 – I’m impressed and exhausted just thinking about it!!

    Grrrr! Isn’t it galling when a wind insists on being a headwind all the time?

    A basic rule of meteorology, or however it’s spelled, is headwind is a constant. Your work rate continues to leave me slack jawed. Happy Fathers Day to the lucky Mr Shaz!
