Very strong winds from NW allowed a reasonably easy run home for lunch. But, getting back was very different, those winds would have blown all the seagulls out to sea. I treat windy days as hill run days without the hills. Usually hard work especially if it is the second half of the run.
Comparing times for the same run back to work from home, today was right there within a minute of the usual time for the trip for 6.5 kms into the wind. Must be getting fitter.
KB rate above is any run around 5' 30" pace or just better. That's the pace Kerrie Bremner ran for 100 km in 9 hours and 1 minute a few weeks ago in Italy. The problem is it's tough running at that pace sometimes for 10 kms let alone another 90 km on top.
