Against The Wind

The start of Saturday’s run didn’t seem too bad.  Sure, it was only 22 degrees but the sun was shining and there didn’t seem to be any wind.  Until I got to the four mile mark and turned around to head back toward home.  Then it hit me square in the face – a stiff, cold wind.  No wonder the first half of the run was easy, I had a strong wind at my back.  The second half was a different story.  In fact, I changed my route and cut over a block and tried to zig-zag though side street and behind businesses to use buildings as wind blocks.  It worked a little in spots but overall it was a chilly return trip.

So, next time I’ll be smarter and start against the wind so on the return the wind will help push me home.
