Run 1:10:00  14.0 km (5:00 / km)
Saturday morning run from my place, initially along the Banyule Flats singletrack (muddy in places, as expected), then out to the Finns Reserve bridge and back through the lower end of Bulleen - a few hills but not as many as there can be here - I'm still a bit tentative about that.
This was a very nice run at times, especially through the middle, although not as fast as I would have liked. Achilles not beyond the annoying-niggle stage, but how would it cope with more serious work? I don't know; the first hint will come with the Victorian Relays tomorrow.
In the name of distance-extending I went a slightly different route to usual and found the, seemingly new, premises of Kerrigan's Accident Repairs. Surprised they don't make more use of the Castle connection in their advertising (I'm sure you can think of some pertinent slogans).
I also saw Craig Langdon as I finished off through the Ivanhoe shops, but didn't stop to tell him that I was disappointed with his actions this week. It is a bit mystifying to hear claims that his demise was orchestrated by the faceless men of the factions; had such been the case one might have thought that the local branch secretary might be the sort of person that said faceless men (or representatives thereof) might want to have a word with. As it was the only people I heard from in the run-up to the preselection ballot were the candidates themselves (not that I was exactly the easiest person to track down in mid-2009).
