Running race (4 Peaks: Feathertop) 2:04:38 [5] 11.6 km (10:44 / km) +1401m 6:42 / km
shoes: La Sportiva Akasha

So after thinking I wasn't going to look at previous times (which was lucky at Buffalo cos I thought I was a lot nearer 2 hours than I was) I totally geeked and knew exactly how long I was on Feathertop, and at what time I needed to beat at the hut, and roughly what my average pace. Competitive against 2017 Jayne, definitely. Despite this being the 4th time I've done the 4 peaks the race twice stopped at Fed hut so I've only actually run the whole thing once (plus the horrendous NW spur time).

So again tough speed hiking, interspersed with seemingly tiny bits of running. Nice chat with an English lady who lives in Ballarat and knows the Gordons and Aislinn's folks. She was stronger than me on the hill so pulled away just before the hut.

Was dreading the steep bit before the hut a bit but wasn't as hard as I remembered. Ran bit more between hut and last k climb, and then when it flattened out on top.

Somehow I managed to be 19.5 mins quicker than last year, and was immediately pissed off it wasn't 20 but then I saw a slightly broken Aislinn sat on the ground surrounded by first aiders so got distracted (still managed to take photos once she'd been fixed up a bit though).
10 AM

Hiking (Down Feathertop) 2:19:41 [2] 11.01 km (12:42 / km)
shoes: La Sportiva Akasha

Hike down Feathertop with Ailsinn, Christoph and Julie the nice medic lady.

It's a really long way to walk down.

Running race (4 Peaks: Buffalo) 1:43:42 [5] 10.32 km (10:03 / km) +1094m 6:34 / km
shoes: La Sportiva Akasha

Bit nervous about these races coming up the last 3 months of injury. My physio didn't totally object (I think she might have realised objection was useless) but I did promise to take it day by day and not do stuff if it hurt.

I also totally expected my shin to hurt so kinda thought I might only be doing Buffalo and Hotham. Buffalo has previously always been the last day, so always been a slog and I've never run it with fresh legs. Nervously put on my brand new shoes - always a good idea to run in brand new shoes, right?

For some reason they did two waves and I decided to try go at the front of the second to avoid crossing the bridge and getting immediately stuck behind people. This kinda worked but went off a bit fast and pretty much died as soon as it went up. Started hiking (which felt hard) and soon started catching the back of the first wave, which made me feel good. Hiked most of the way to the firetrail where I put in a jog but just not feeling very fit. Found it hard overtaking so many walkers (there seemed like a lot more) on the rocks and did a bit of too'ing and fro'ing with some folk.

Managed to put in a run at the end and pulled away from those behind me - except Laurina who came past and couldn't keep up with her.

Somehow I got a 9 min PB, and my shin didn't hurt at all. It felt super tough though!!
