wind vs running

If it was a very windy day, can that effect your training, how much slower do you expect to run a 10km run?


  • Honestly, if some of the miles are into a serious gale then you can be minutes slower per mile....let alone the full distance.

    Impossible to tell really depends on wind speed and direction etc. could be a few seconds to a few minutes.

    I don't think it's an exact science. Similar to comparing hilly to flat and on road to off road.
  • ALso do you get a similar benefit with the wind behind you? 

  • You'd be on for a personal best over a flat/straight route with the wind behind you all the way!

    In the wind last night the first 3 miles I could cruise at 6.30 a mile. Coming back I had to push as hard as possible to get anywhere near 7 mins.
