Almost the new default recovery run for me – round trip to Centennial via Rushcutters.
There was five to start from the usual spot (Kev, Eoin, JW, myself plus a new guy). To my dismay, Irish Kev completely disregarded the concept of ‘recovery’ and pushed the pace the whole way. He later explained he was dangerously fresh from 4 rest days.
Forgot how many hills are involved in the Garden Island, Rushcutters then Ocean Rd route. My legs reminded me of the weekend Ks pretty quickly. New guy was dropped inside CP, then JW dropped on the return.
13.8km at 4:45s.
Happy to forgive the faster pace as the Irish make good company. Legs felt pretty sleepy the whole way.
