The wind tonight was insane! It’s the windiest run I have ever done. One minute it was pushing me forward then pushing me back and then from side to side. I couldn’t open my eyes or my mouth because little gumnuts kept getting in. Even now I am still feeling little crunchy bits in my mouth. I’m calling it, that was the hardest 5 km I have ever run. Not because my lungs or my legs were tired but because of the wind. I was all ready to pump out a fast 5 km but it was impossible to keep my speed when the wind was pushing me back. I felt like I was running in place at some points.
My hair in my selfie tonight is so wind swept. Dashing don’t you think?
- Distance: 5 km
- Time: 30:04
- Max heart rate: 194
- Average heart rate: 174 bpm
I want to point out that I completed 3 km in 18 minutes exactly. Pretty cool. It’s rare that I land on such round numbers and it’s all even. I felt great tonight. My lungs and legs felt strong. Now that the cool change has well and truly come, I’m looking forward to some more strong runs.
Happy running – Melissa
