Thought the back was a bit better this morning so headed for the Striders STaR at Putney. I get to choose a hilly H3 course to come back on. Duh!
Only 5 of us this morning at 6:20. Started in Putney and then went down river towards Huntleys Point and then across to Hunters Hill, along a few bush tracks and then through the Field of Mars to get to Ryde.
At this point Jo Cowan and I both decided to do the short version. I wasn't keen on a long run with the back anyway. So we ran back down Lane Cove Rd to Morrison Rd and back to Putney.
Very humid 85% and 19 degrees during the run. Energy sapping stuff. Total was 17.1ks in 1:32:07. Average pace of 5:23 per klm.
