Teering race (Sydney Summer) 48:23  7.12 km (6:48 / km) +150m 6:09 / km
shoes: Saucony HP 12, Blue
Pottery Green, Lane Cove. =9th, so an OK result for a sluggish run in very wet (flood) conditions. Many people came a cropper in the creek - Warwick, Mike Burton two notables. Garmin 305 recorded the trip home but not the run, so it is on its way to the tip.
Got most of the obvious route except that I missed the better way 6 to 18 - up and over on the roads was 1:30 quicker than down and up through the bush. Correctly dropped the far east controls (12 and 25) and avoided the SW ones too (27, 14, 7 and 4). Lost about a minute searching for 15 - its just a black smudge on the map. Got back to Pottery Green with 5 minutes to spare, so took on the 70 point NW loop of 8, 11, 28, 9 which I got in 8 minutes for a 4 minute penalty (- 40). So worth it, and that was the category winning margin - 30 points.
Contact on the map worked well, very nice glossy finish stood up well to all the mud and water.
