Harbourside Hike 29ks

I knew it was going to be tough today when the course read H4. Don't think my legs are ready for that yet.
Huge crowds in the 6 and 6:10 but heaps going short due to Six Foot boat race next week. We had about a dozen at 6:20 with 4 going short. Shaun was worried about the river height. I said don't worry a 3ft flow is over your head. Too funny, not!

Started in Waverton and ran through North Sydney, Cammeray, Crows Nest, St Leonards, Northwood, Riverview, Longueville and back through Northwood. Then down to Greenwich Point, Wollstonecraft, Berry Island, Balls Head and back to the finish.

Thank god that was over. Plenty of hills and bush. Timmys calf would have blown running up to Crows Nest in the first 5k.
Total was 29.2ks in 2:38:00. Average pace of 5:24 per klm. Humidity was high again 80% and 21 degrees for most of the run.

6' won't be on - the river will be too high!

Good training run. Flat old Canberra 50k will be a breeze after that.
