Windy Day Yesterday, huh?
Meets like yesterday are crucial in the development of you as a runner. Yep, it was windy, and by the end of the day, I was pretty drained. But, learning to run in the wind is a skill we all need to learn. Learning how to draft in a pack, when to move up places, when to lead, how to run with wind-cutting form; those are all pretty important running tactics, and I thought we got a good dose of them yesterday. So even though you might not have PR-ed, or you might not have won a race you expected to win, take the positives out of yesterday. and the next time it is super windy at an interval practice, or a Saturday meet, use what you learned and hold that as an advantage over your competition. After all, wind is just a bunch of air molecules, really nothing to be afraid if!
