Here in The Hague the weather isn't doing me any favours. Starting from Fri evening up until Sun early morning, rain showers with breaks of strong wind. And just when I thought it couldn't get any worse: wind storm!
My training largely adapted thereto: on Fri evening I did a combo 5km run and 10km biking, was caught by the rain while biking... went home soaking wet and dipped straight into the bathtub! On Sat morning I did 22km, tried for a faster pace, but the wind took it all. On Sun morning I did 19km and in the evening 9km, incl 6km faster (on a route somewhat protected by the wind!). Total mileage for last week 129km. and lots of wind.
This week and the next week I would like to pick up the pace and define my race pace. I think the most important criterium to define my race pace is, to run faster than my usual training pace, slower than tempo, and feel comfortable at this pace.
