Running long 1:42:47  14.58 mi (7:03 / mi)
Mixed pace long run today. Went down to the beach for the first part and then went out to B&Q at Bridge of Don to try and get some shelter from the wind as the wind was brutal down at the beach. Session was 8 easy and 6 at tempo, happy with my easy miles and they genuinely felt very comfortable and at no point was I pushing the pace with them. Once onto the 6 at tempo felt as though I was going comfortably hard and at a pace that I could maintain (upset stomach did however mean a pit stop at ASV). Once back down onto beach and out of shelter working into the wind was very hard and resulted in a 7:10 but it was all I could manage pushing into the wind. Once back on top prom managed 2 @ the tempo pace and final one was back into wind so struggle again. All in all a positive run as felt comfortable and as though there was more in the tank when working at the tempo pace just a little annoyed that wind hampered 2/6 of the tempo miles.
