A big crowd running the 6:20am group this morning, about 20 of us. Very hilly STaR with a Striders rating of H5. Probably not as bad as that but it certainly had plenty of good hills. Had Grandpa, Aimhigh,Timinerko,26miles,Silverfox and MPH after he dropped back from the 6:10 group running today.
Very windy with a few showers around and lots of bush on our journey around the Spit Bridge and then from Neutral Bay back through Cremorne and Mosman.
Certainly very scenic if you had a chance to look at the harbour. Definitely one of my favourites as I used to live in Mosman and ran past two of my parents old houses in the process.
Had a hard time keeping up with the main group through the Zoo area as the front runners would take off before everyone finished at a drink stop. Group run?
The run was great but I was certainly feeling it as we had 10ks through the bush in total with plenty of rocks and tree roots to dodge. Good practice again for Six Foot, and so were the hills.
Arrived back on my own as others cut the run short near the end to do more bush and I came down the road.
Ended up with 29.5 ks in 2:35.35. Average pace of 5:16 per klm. Supposed to be 31ks.
Chatted to Amjan and MPH after the run. Both commenting that my legs were really skinny. Very funny my mother always worries about that too.
