[/quote]How's it compare with the Coogee-Clovelly coast walk around Gordon's Bay to the north ? There's quite a few steps there - giving gradients around 50% for some sections. Coogee to Clovelly and back would be a really punishing walking/jogging repeat, and at least an out-and-back run seems popular enough with local joggers. My knees hurt just thinking about that
coogee to clovelly and back is not so bad. its parts of south coogee which are challenging. there is one run of over 200 steps in a row some of the steps are enormous too. when i want to do a high intense training session, i just go there and to the steps for half an hour. heart rate remains at over 85% the whole time. sore legs for a couple of weeks!
