I did have walking between my 400's yesterday, they were 200 m's of walking which was about 2 mins. It was a session from JG's training for 5k. I look forward to your tempo session, although, you might not be!! I can empathise with you over the wind on the track, I have had many a training session of 400's when conditions were exactly as you describe, and a few 5000 m races too. I think it should/could be good for ones mentals!!!!!!!
flipping weather forecast for tomorrow includes wind doesn't it but I am sure with grand parents who were in the trenches will have provided you with good stamina for such an occasion - all best anyway, whatever, the weather and I look forward to reading about your race.
Today I have been clearing some of the kitchen cupboards ready for the installation of new kitchen in a couple or so weeks time, I am trying to fill a box or 2 each day!
A few very simple exercises would help. Not ones that would take long each day and would help you even if you don't run. If you are interested I could email you, BUT I don't want to pressurise you into something you don't wish to do. X
