Joined a 10-strong crew headed by Timmy en route to Heartbreak Hill. I really wanted the company but never intended to finish the 17km.
Found myself loitering at the back with Gleeson, noting the rest pushing on sub 5 min pace. Decided a 5km out to Double Bay and return would suffice.
Mini detour around Garden Island saw me over the 10k goal.
11.6km in 63 min. Legs neither feel fresh nor flat. Hard to get a gauge at such a slow pace.
