Jogging Tips and Guidelines
The Heads Beats Tails Rule
A headwind always slows you down more than a tailwind speeds you up.
So expect to run slower on windy days. I disregard the watch on really windy days because headwinds cost me 15 to 25 seconds a mile, and I only get a portion of that back after I turn around, says Monte Wells, a longtime runner in Amarillo, Texas, Americas windiest city. The key is to monitor your effort, not your pace. Start against the wind, so its at your back in the second half.
The Exception On point to point runs with the wind at your back, youll fly along faster than usual.
