8 AM

Swimming 37:00 [2] 1.0 km (37:00 / km)

First trip since returning to the windswept winter wilds of Fitzroy, still reasonably well-populated. Faded away a bit later on after a reasonable start. Slept poorly, which may or may not have had something to do with seeing the results of Newspoll just before going to bed.

I was supposed to be having a massage after this but it turned out he'd changed his schedule while I was away and the message hadn't got through to me, so it will have to wait until Tuesday (I wonder if my post-trip Achilles issues are partly related to calf tightness). Did get to traverse Fitzroy on the bike and saw more election posters than would usually be the case, now that it's contested territory; the quirkiest of which was "A fairy dies every time someone votes for Tony Abbott'.
1 PM

Run 46:00 [3] 9.0 km (5:07 / km)

Lunchtime run around the Tan. Loosened up OK after an awkward start and handled the hill pretty well. Slower than normal for this circuit but I suspect traffic may have had something to do with that. This time the building works are on the (slower) inner track, and look like they may be for some time.

In my absence a new business of interest has opened next to our building (a branch of the Degani bakery, who were excellent when they were just a Clifton Hill and Fairfield operation but have lost a little of their quality through expansion). It seemed that another local-ish business was on its way out but South Wharf hasn't gone bust after all, at least for now (DFO is normally of no interest to me, but it also hosts the only reasonable bookshop within lunchtime walking distance of the office). The tramline relocation in Docklands Esplanade which was supposed to be finished six weeks ago isn't.
