Over to Centennial for some easy laps to give the new wheels a spin out and get used to it, having a lighter and well working bike is a lot of fun!

Running (Road) warm up/down 23:00 [3] 4.9 km (4:42 / km) +70m 4:23 / km
ahr:156 max:172 slept:6.5 shoes: Inov-8 Road-X 255 (old)

Over to Sydney Park for a time trial rather than the planned Otford - Bundeena run as the wind forecast suggested it wouldn't be a lot of fun and Ondrej couldn't do Sunday.

Now four missed opportunities to run Coastal Classic - 2 x Weddings, 1 x Bush Fires, 1 x Strong Winds.

Hopefully can do it this year before it gets too hot.
8 AM

Running (Road) race 17:18 [5] 5.0 km (3:28 / km) +60m 3:16 / km
ahr:190 max:197 shoes: Inov-8 Road-X 233

Sydney Park Run - been a while since I've done this and with work still ongoing in the park it was quite a different course, still anti-clockwise round the park & roads to the oval, now you go round that and then up and down the main hill before returning much the same way (with a few cross country sections - exciting!).

Went off behind a couple of guys and sat in behind them for the first couple of km but the pace was slowing a little on the 2nd km (3:22, 3:29) so I pushed on round the oval and knew I'd probably be stronger up the hill so opened a gap up to the top, but had a bit of a stitch coming on so wasn't pushing back down the hill and the gap was closed a bit (3:28). Back down the road I was starting to struggle and could hear the guy behind closing further (3:32) but I was probably aided by the short cross-country sections and then the final few hills towards the finish meant I could open small gaps and managed to hold him off on the sprint for the line (I wasn't doing much sprinting by that stage - 3:27). 17:18 official time, the guy behind has gone 30s quicker in recent months too.

10 seconds or so taken off my Parkrun PB, still a bit down on the 16:50 I ran during the 5 mile race around the Olympic Park a couple of years back having been doing some decent training, so should easily break 17 minutes this year if I do more than a couple of weeks of speed work. Good marker though and a decent guide as to pace ahead of city to surf next weekend.

Running (Road) warm up/down 26:30 [3] 4.8 km (5:31 / km) +50m 5:15 / km
ahr:144 max:161 shoes: Inov-8 Road-X 255 (old)

Shuffle home with Ondrej, calves struggling.

Got new Garmin but tried the charging lead when at the office with the old one and it came to life. Tried switching it on when I got home and it just had garbled menus and wouldn't charge again. Pretty sure it's borked, but rather frustrating as it doesn't seem *completely* screwed.

Hills & stairs around neutral bay, pretty tough season but had a few folk around me tonight at least to keep me pushing on.

Was running the downs pretty hard which hurt, and had a stitch by the time we came to the final rep up Ben Boyd road so only managed ~4:30, was pretty smashed.
