Given the thunderstorms of the previous evening and more rain during the night it was perhaps hardly surprising that it was a bit windy when I went out next day for a lunch time run. The wind was blowing straight up the river and was especially strong along the open area by Bunny Meadows.
The picture doesn't really do justice, the trees were shaking and there were small waves forming across the river. It was a headwind all the way down to my turning point by the Chinese bridge, and then having to slow myself down on the way back.
If I had a wind speed app for my phone I could have told you exactly how strong it was.
