Rose Bay Roughup 14ks

A hilly run tonight. Headed up through Waverley toward Bondi Junction and then down to Bondi and over to Rose Bay. Then along the harbour front past Point Piper and into Double Bay and then up the hill to Edgecliff and back home again via Centennial Park.
Plenty of hills in the run and part of the run on grass as well.

It was 14.3ks in 1:17.59. Average pace of 5:27 per klm.
Hip still hurting a fair bit. Don't know how I hurt it. Maybe as the action got more tired during the 50k I put more pressure on it.

Tesso I will be doing Sydney Marathon finally, after doing the half twice and missing 2005 with injury.

I'm a bit slow off the mark this Flake. It was good to catch up with you in Canberra. 3:03 was a fantasits result and to go on and finish 50K was outstanding. You have esttablished a very good base for Sydney and have plenty of time to hone the body for another attack on the sub 3.
All the best.

So, you going to see someone about that hip???

Sydney - cool! Chances are I'll be there too. I want revenge on that course.

I hope the hip is nothing serious Paul. By the way, the 570m altitude of Canberra costs about 1.5% over a marathon, so your 3:03 is worth about 3:00:xx at sea level.

I like the idea of having a good winter for Sydney.
