Out at Upjohn Park, Rydalmere for the State short course cross country. 3 laps of a 2.5k course for the open, 35+,45+ males.
Course was dry with the only wet area across a creek which was a bit muddy.
Didn't feel like I ran well at all today. Dehydrated from half way through the first lap.
Laps were 10:14, 21:20 and the finish in 32:01. Last year was 32:26. So at least some improvement. A bit disappointing after a good road relay split last week.
Tom Highnam snaffled the 35+ age bronze medal. With Fossil streeting the womens field as he was running 55+ by at least 300m over 5k. He ran 17:30. CR Grandpa was 2nd and Sportsman 4th. Pretty sure the team would have won gold after those 3.
Balmain Bungle STaR tomorrow.
