Set out with a smallish Friday crew. Renee, 2 newbies and later joined by Tym, Frenchman and Asian Dave. The newbies seemed intent on 4:20s (both an awkward running style) and to my disappointment, Renee followed. Too fast for a recovery.
Lucky I had good company in the others at 4:50s. Circled the usual OH, Wharves and down to Barangaroo. Cracking weather as usual, ruined by energy-sapping cross winds.
Finished up at CQ to make 15km in 75 min. Expected my legs to feel better than they did. No real pain on the ankle, but flat quads / tight-ish hips.
PM: back at Leichardt pool milking the 10 days for $10 offer. 2km freestyle dodging retirees doing breathstroke in a double lane (swim squad in the other lanes). Hate it.
2km in 42:50. Mild improvement on Monday. I’ll take the PB.
