Street Series (Waratah) 43:51  4.53 km (9:41 / km)
Went early, helped set up and do Rego. Avoided the showers of the day and lovely and cool... but the hills were still there.
Worked out a plan which was conservative to say the least. It's been a hilly 10 days with last week's event, Sunday training and a heavy legs session at the gym in the morning already under my belt. It was interesting to overhear others - runners!!- saying they didn't bother going to some controls because it was the last event of the season proper and why....
Macey's courses are always great and still the same with this one. Had thought to go to Braye Park control as it is the highest point of the map but wimped out. Planning changed throughout - adding a couple of controls but seeing Damien on course AGAIN during which we safely but very deliberately cross to the other side of the road (ritual greeting ceremony between us) I stuffed the next control and then pulled the timing tight to get an additional 2 pointer which may have resulted in losing 1 for being late (most likely, on checking time I think I wouldn't have lost it!) but I didn't feel like being late, and what's another 200m uphill after the week.
So ends another Summer Street Series - still love the format! Managed a full attendance so will await my reward next week at presentation - toblerone!
