So it was that time of the year again
City to surf. A lazy 14k run from the city of Sydney to Bondi…the beach…obviously
I had done some training in the lead up and was feeling not to bad in the lead. As you might know by now that my prior preparation is often derailed by some form of injury / illness
This year it was a case of the man flu up until the day – just what you want when you are going for a run!
By a stroke of luck this year I was in one of the lead groups, filled with some seriously fast runners. My biggest challenge was keeping “my” pace when the gun went off – last year I was overtaking people, this year, until I hit heartbreak hill, I am pretty sure I did not overtake anyone.
I am not sure if it was the man flu, the weather or me but I was not feeling it and really had to grind out the run. Last year I loved it, this year I put up with it
Despite all that I managed to knock off almost 3 minutes from last years time (72:12 this year just out of the top 10,000)
Believe it or not at 34 I am starting to understand how to race!
