Running race (Mt Ainslie Run-up) 11:55  2.3 km (5:11 / km) +230m 3:27 / km
First proper go at this, so a pb wasn't too surprising. Fairly hot field with Craigie, Burridge and Minto all in attendance. Tucked in behind Craigie from the off trying to not let him get too far ahead on the flat bits. As the steepness ramped up I thought I'd have a crack and surged past him. But I couldn't get a gap and he got past me on the next flatter section. Same happened again at the next steeper bit, except this time when it got flatter (concrete path near the top), my legs were gone and he gapped me to win by 8secs. Good workout and fun to be in a battle. Not a bad time but room for improvement - probably spent too much energy early on and in the surges, so lost time at the end.
