Running race (4 Peaks: Feathertop) 2:04:38  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).
