Western Wanderer STaR 29ks

A very warm start this morning. 22 degrees in the inner westie suburb of Drumoyne. Home of the Dirty Reds Rugby Club. Yes it is real.
Start at Drumoyne Rowers car park and then ran through Drumoyne hmmm, Russell Lea, Chiswick, Abbotsford, Wareemba, Canada Bay, Cabarita, and then around Concord Golf Course.

Just before the turn out to Cabarita most of the 6:20 group went short and it was up to Action and myself to uphold the law. When we eventually caught up to the 6:00 group we were clocking 4:10-4:15/ks. A bit too quick for me so I let Action go near Concord Golf course. He's off to London to teach the Poms how to run in April.

We go around the course then run back through Canada Bay, Five Dock, Rodd Pt and back to the start at Drumoyne. I went short at the bay turn.
Total was 28.8ks in 2:14:46. Average pace of 4:40 per klm. Hard work this morning.

I only did that one a couple of times. Nice flat course. That's a solid pace for 28.8k. Looking good for Christchurch.
