I have not done this STaR before. Somehow have managed to either be injured or tapering or something when this has been on.
We started this morning in the Rocks and ran through Millers Point, Pyrmont, Ultimo, Central, Haymarket, the CBD, Wooloomooloo, Rushcutters Bay, turned and ran back through Elizabeth Bay, Potts Point around the Botanical Garderns and the Rocks again. Then ran across the Bridge where I decided not to do the full course and ran back to the start with Jo Cowan.
Total for me was 24.01ks in 1:50:49. Average pace of 4:36 per klm. Yes it was pretty fast at the start with Fats and Action pushing the pace.
Conditions were really cold with the wind. Start was 7 degrees but with windchill only 2.5. Felt colder than Christchurch.
