Teering race (NSW Champs) 15:47  2.69 km (5:52 / km) +34m 5:31 / km
shoes: Saucony Hurricane 2011
Ourimbah Campus. Sprint Distance, straight 2.0 km. 1st*, to add to my current Australian and Oceania titles. So at least one demon exercised after last years mp. Built a substantial lead with the first 7 fastest splits, then wobbled a bit in the middle after running underneath the map for a couple of hundred metres. Rob Prentice quicker through the complex pathways, but had dropped too much early. Ran OK, not brilliant. Breathing not great before, but OK during. L knee a bit sore after.
*actually a bit of a hollow victory as Malcolm Roberts was 5 seconds quicker as an Entry-on-the-Day.
