I ran an out and back route today. I felt great for the first six miles, nice and relaxed and seemed to be flying along. Reached the Pegwell Bay Nature Reserve and did a figure of eight through the reserve looking for my niece's pony Polo [Florence: Polo wasn't there - I think he may have been eaten by wolves!]. That's when I first noticed there was quite a stiff breeze blowing, a breeze I hadn't noticed before. I noticed it on the way back, though! No wonder I'd felt so good running the "out" stretch - I'd had a pretty strong wind assistance. The "back" stretch was really tough, like I was fighting my way through treacle. A really tough workout.
