A Waste Of.....
Distance: 10.55 km
Time: 62' 30"
Weather: sunny, temp 14 degrees, humidity 50%, wind calm
Week: 35.85 km, May: 175.4 km, Year: 1824.75 km
A wasted day except the session in the gym which seemed to make up for the other losses.
A waste of a good day to run, a sunny, cool day with no wind.
I had ideas of a good solid mid week run but work time off during the day prevented that. Then I thought about a solid 10 kms at tempo pace.
But very soon after starting it all gave out. No rhythm, no motivation to push through to get some benefit. There was just nothing there today.
Returned to work, and headed upstairs to the gym. Much better although arms were a little tender from last couple of days.
I can feel improvement there, where the running is just in maintenance mode. No doubt that will change soon as I need to get plenty more kms into the long runs, starting this Saturday.
I'm not running the half marathon on Sunday, it's on bike paths. I will probably go in for a look & a chat, then check out the monthly handicap course at West Stromlo. The grader & mower have been in to make some changes for the better near the start line. We don't need rain now until after the end of this month.
