Vaucluse Variation STaR 27ks

Off to a close Striders training run this morning. Starts at Vaucluse and goes through Rose Bay, Double Bay, Edgecliff, Woollahra, Bondi, Waverley, Bronte, Tamarama, Nth Bondi, Dover Heights, The Gap, Watsons Bay and back to Vaucluse.
The run is very hilly and has a lot of stairs from the 15k mark onwards. So, not real good for training actually. But great views of the ocean from Bronte to Watsons Bay and then up the harbour towards the Bridge.
Cut the run a little bit short at the end and did 27.5ks in 2:19:05. Average pace of 5:05 per klm.

Good to catch up with a few post Six Foot Striders and I saw Amjan and Fats' new baby.

That's a good course - great views. Must be pleasant to run at BDM pace during the taper.

Were you practising a World CC-style start yesterday? 70 secs for your first 400?

Stairs are good for you Flakey. So I am told.

That's the last long one for you, take it easy now until Canberra.

How good does it feel to get that last long one out of the way!
