Legs not up to the job

Couldn't face running tonight. The legs feel lifeless so there was no point in just going through the motions. I went down the gym for some upper body and abs work. Also put in 30 minutes hard interval on the exercise bike which worked up quite a sweat - like you needed to know that! I find the bike work really useful because I can put in hard effort when I wouldn't be able to do so with a run.

If I rest up tomorrow I should be able to put in a really strong long run on Saturday. I'm aiming for 24 miles and thinking out to Pill/Portbury and back through to Failand with a few laps in Ashton Court. It will be my last longish run before Luton which isn't really that far away now.
