Great difficult containing the enthusiasm to turn the legs over at Rushcutters for the 400s. Felt the 30 degrees justified a relaxed splash down at ABC. Was actually quite excited, until I saw the lane.
Three lanes lost to squad. Overcrowding issues on the rest. Slipped into a pretty crowded medium lane.
Now I know what taking a bath with a dozen guys is like. 90s/lap swimmers, myself at 55-60s/lap then a few sub 50s. I acted both as a steamroll then later as roadkill.
1.6km done in a touch over 30 min. Very refreshing but too stressful.
4km jog back around Farm Cove via CQ as the cool-down. I did not see any familiar faces today.
The main running was a double commute of 11km. Thus, 15km for the day on the feet. Feeling better.
