Foul Weather for a Tempo Run


The forecast for my 6 mile tempo run this afternoon:

With wind gusts in the 30s and a steady rain I had a couple sections that felt like I was running into a fire hose.

I persevered, met my goal time, and finished wet, cold, and satisfied.

Tempo runs are my favorite because:

  • manageable distance
  • 10k or better race pace
  • don’t need to carry food or fluids
  • see a lot of trail/road quickly
