Down to Sydney Park in downtown St Peters for the East Met Cross Country race. Either 2.5ks, 5ks or 7.5ks today, so chose the 7.5ks. Not that I was going to do anything else.
The course has one long hill plus two other short sharp hills. All in all a tough Cross Country course.
Splits as called by the Time Keeper were 10:30, 21:52 and the finish 33:29.
So 2.5ks of 10:30, 11:22 and 11:37. Probably too fast at the start.
Average pace of 4:27 per klm for a hilly cross country course is not too bad considering the Novice 10k pace on a flat course two weeks ago was 4:32 per klm.
Met up with Jo Cowan, Bernie G, Blue Dog, Vat, Royworlds and Timinerko at the race.
