Home down to Lane Cove Park, round the loop (54:25 for 9.52kms), then back home.
Haven't done this for while so happy with the time but was always under the impression it was 10k so a bit disappointed to find it was less. Wasn't too impressed with the fire trail Sydney Water has bulldozed down to De Burgh Creek, likewise with the shiny new pipeline and barbed wire fence, nothing like fitting in with the environment, especially in a national park! Another example of a NSW Government Agency having the power to do what they want. Didn't seem to perturb the Brush Turkey that had built its mound a bit further down the hill. I had the impression that the Police helicopter was keeping an eye on me for at least half the loop, I must have looked like an arsonist dressed in my singlet and "sexy" long socks!
