Yesterday at the oval going around in circles was a good day. Today could not have been more different. Although going up and down hills is not like a flat oval, the run just had nothing. The hilly track at the back of Urambi was tough, the river track out to Red Rocks gorge was terrible, admittedly both were against a strong wind. But the return with a bit of assistance was average and even the water at Pine Is is getting warm, so not even the coldness to refresh as was the case just a few weeks ago.
Probably just one of those days when it wasn't meant to be. So take a day off running, change the plan for Thursday to 1 km sprints or tempo somewhere flat and get ready for the last long run on Saturday before BC.
