Up to Cherrybrook for this STaR with a small crowd of only 5 of us running at 6:20am. Must have been the rain in Sydney this morning kept them away.
The run started in Cherrybrook and went through West Pennant Hills, back through Cherrybrook, Pennannt Hills, Westleigh, Normanhurst, Thornleigh and back to Cherrybrook.
Some great runs through the Cumberland State Forest and parts of the Great North Walk.
Neverending hills in this run, everytime you go around a corner another one appears. Very hard work. The other 4 guys did a short option at the 22k mark so I ran the last 10 on my own. I think I was much slower after they left.
Total was 32.1ks after a little extra from missing a street turn. Total was 2.45:30 for a hard mornings work. Average pace of 5:09 per klm. Probably one of my slowest ever STaR's, but what a hilly course.
I need a sleep!
