Super fun blast around the Cascades on loads of little MTB trails I didn't know existed, and I've barely run on any of the firetrail here either. Easily the best area used this season.
Thankfully had chosen a route to minimise the downhill single track which also minimised how much interaction I'd have with the MTB race going on at the same time, and inadvertently picked what seemed to be the best direction to do some of the steep stuff too - some sketchy descents out there in the wet.
Good route and clean execution, just a hesitation before 26 when avoiding bikers, and ran past 15 while reading the description for it, wasn't expecting it on a tree and certainly not that tree. Would have been pissed if that'd cost me points, which another second would have.

Chilled Spit to Freshwater via Grotto Point, and through the streets in manly to avoid the esplanade crowds. S to M pretty busy, but I don't think I'd have been going much faster given the heat anyway. Freshie was a suitably refreshing swim at the end though. 40.19pp/km

Easy out and backs on Lane cove trails & blue gum from the Epping road oval, nice to run the easy trails that didn't involve much thought and try and refind some running mojo. Was feeling ok with the heat until coming back across the golf course, ended up having a duck in the river at the pins I was so cooked. 1.61pp/km
