Run 44:00 [3] 8.0 km (5:30 / km)

A bit earlier than I'd usually head out on a Saturday (just early enough not to be caught up by the parkrun people), on a somewhat autumnal morning, down into Yarra Bend. Not feeling especially awake at times, but OK on the injury front.

The rest of the day was then spent at a series of Labor policy workshops. Often going to these means you learn something new - and today's bit of insight is that under the current contracts, the State Government doesn't actually have any control over where bus routes are, how often they run or what their timetables are (beyond a fairly minimal guaranteed level of service) - this is all up to the bus companies. (The Government intends to do something about this when the contracts are up for renewal next year, which will no doubt result in said companies squealing like stuck pigs and their squealing being amplified 100x by the Herald-Sun). This goes a long way to explaining why there is no co-ordination between buses and trains, and why the Mornington Peninsula route only runs every 50 minutes despite the fact that it's so routinely overcrowded that at peak hours your chances of getting on anywhere north of Dromana are somewhere between minimal and non-existent.
