The Morning After......

The City to Surf : still a bit stiff in the legs this morning, so I went across to Ironmines Oval & ran, very slowly, on the grass for 5km to loosen up the muscles...which it did!

We left Mittagong by coach at 6:00 a.m. yesterday...dropped off right at the start, picked up at the finish & took us to lunch at the Charing Cross Hotel before returning to Mittagong at 4:30 p.m.

My correct time for the C2S, from the Herald newspaper, 104:07. It was a comfortable, though very hot, run but I felt fine all the way from A to B (Bondi)! I took my hand-held water bottle with 500ml of sports drink so that I didn't have to go near the crowded water stations. Very pleased I did this too! Almost as pleased as I was to see/hear the cheer squad at the approach to Bondi Beach!
I think 104 minutes, but will update tomorrow. ....(exactly right...except for .07!!)
A couple of pics at Bondi Beach & Charing Cross Hotel for lunch.


  1. Well Done LL. I'm glad you didn't get trampled in the crowds.

  2. Congrats on a great run LL. You looked faaaantastic running down the hill past the cheer squad.

    Pity we didn't get to catch up. Next time!

  3. Always a pleasure to cheer you on especially when you are ahead of so many young whipper snappers!!!


  4. A huge WELL DONE LL :)
    Best wishes to you from Canberra.
