Time: 11 hrs 38 mins 23 secs
Rate: 6' 59" per km
Weather: all seasons in one day, we were in Melbourne, temp 10-15 degrees, heavy rain to bright sunshine, calm to windy
Hoped to get finished in under the cutoff of 12 hours and made it. Felt Ok all day with only hip flexor problems after 9 hours when I needed some help from Liz's crew to get through to the finish. That slowed me down especially on the down hill.
Walked well up Anderson St to make up for it. Enjoyed the day immensely. It is good to see the leaders going past so fast and so often which you don't see on most other events. Congratulations to everyone that competed.
Brilliant effor by Barry the male winner in the 100 kms and especially great running by Liz be the leading female in a great time at this distance. Better results in store, go for it.
Writing this in Tassie on a week long family visit. Trip across Bass Strait very rough, good I am still a bit tired. Hip flexor problem has gone and now feel Ok. Will run again on Thursday after getting some visiting out of the way. Cold water in Bass Strait will fix any other problems.
Nana naps the real deal in the afternoons this week.
