Midweek City to Surf Training with K.O.M

Usual midweek run with Tommy H as our City to Surf preparation continues but we were joined by ladies Jac, Renee and Elle for a change as well as a new lad 'James'. Very easy pace heading out past Rushcutters and up onto New South Head Road bearing in mind we had Elle who is 28 weeks pregnant the pace was over 5.10 min/ks.  I think Elle lasted till about the 5k marker before deciding to return and at the 6k point that's where we push the pace for the best part of 2ks that includes Heartbreak Hill. King of the Mountain (K.O.M) title is up for grabs each week, but unlike last time Tommy H wasn't about to give me a head start this week and went out hard from the get-go and was never headed. Really seemed to struggle after that and could only hold 4.15 pace for that stage (think I was 4.10s last time)
Regrouped at the top before retracing the steps back to the city, but not before we had to endure part 2 of the K.O.M section coming out from Double Bay to Edgecliffe.  A shorter segment but just as tough and the same result as earlier with Tommy H feeling good (must have been as he missed Tuesdays session?)
Once again really enjoyable run especially having the extra company as I returned with just under 16.5k done in 78 minutes, averaging 4.49s
