On the grass in Centennial Park from the Oxford St gates down to the restaurant.

Total ended up being 10.5ks in 47:54. Average pace of 4:35/k. Of course that was including running back uphill as a recovery.

Did a 1k warmup and a 1k cool down afterwards.

Six Foot Track 45ks - 6:11:18

Minimum temp 13 degrees, high of 20 degrees and foggy up Mini Mini and sunny for most of the day.
Well considering not much training due to moving office and a 2 week holiday I didn't expect much. Didn't think it would take this long but should have known.

Place was 701 out of 854 runners which will means I need to send in a marathon qualifier to get the same wave start for next year(wave 3) otherwise they may put me at the back. And no beer bet.

1:32:15 To Cox's River.
3:21:09(1:48:53-10.5k) To Pluvio.
6:11:18(2:50:09-19k) At the finish.

So it got very ugly once past Cox's River as expected.

Position wise:
357th at Cox's.
572nd at Pluvio.
701st at the Finish.

I might be better next year. Anyway 3 finishes gives me a guaranteed start which makes the entry easier.
Good wins by David Byrne and Hanny Allston.

Long Hill Reps 5 x 1.3ks

Due to really bad traffic starting from the Eastern Distributor, and through the Tunnel and Mosman it was too late to get to Allambie to do some longer hill reps.
Instead did reps of Parriwi Rd.

Reps were 6:54, 7:00, 7:06, 6:57, 7:01. All done with about the same recovery back down the hill.

Humid and very windy. At least I was being blown up the hill.

Downhill Reps 12 x 420m

24 degrees, 60% humidity, 35k winds with gusts up to 50k's. Lucky I was running downhill away from the northerly.

Did the grass hill in Centennial Park.

Reps were 1:23, 1:21, 1:19, 1:19, 1:21, 1:18, 1:20, 1:20, 1:20, 1:18, 1:21, 1:19.
All done with probably triple recovery back up the hill into the wind.

Longer Hill Rep 2 x 3.6k

Allambie rd again. 22 degrees and 62% humidity wasn't too bad. A bit of breeze helped as well.

Long recovery back down the hill.

23 degrees and 73% humidity.
Down the grass slope from the Paddington gates to the café in Centennial Park.
Plenty of people about but none on the grass which was good.
