Run 37:00  6.5 km (5:42 / km)
Made what's becoming an annual trip down to Geelong for Melbourne Victory's annual match there (the locals must think soccer's full of goals - last year it was 3-3 and this year it was 4-2). Original thoughts involved one of the local beaches but it wasn't really a beach day, so instead meandered around back roads, taking in the Brisbane Ranges - perhaps surprisingly my first trip there. This was one of the earlier orienteering areas in Victoria but hasn't been used since the 1980s because of access issues related to dieback; we'd heard on the grapevine that the authorities might be receptive to parts of it being used again, but I didn't see a lot that inspired me (much of the area close to the road was burnt out in about 2007 and has grown back thickly).
Ended up doing a run in Torquay along the coast to the east - mostly on a track which turned into a dirt road, out to Point Impossible. It turns out that Point Impossible is a nude beach but no nudity was on display - it was far too cool for Australian nudists (I doubt if German ones would be deterred). Original thoughts were to come back along the beach but the tide was up, so returned the way I came. Felt a bit sluggish and quads tight early, which reflects that this is the first post-long run run for a while.
