Run 39:00  7.0 km (5:34 / km)
Mission accomplished, as it often hasn't been for attempted lunchtime runs of late - the only real benchmark here was to get through without anything hurting too much. This was achieved (although the Achilles did twinge a bit on one ramp). Also got through the first hot-weather run of the season, with it sitting on 30 degrees on heading out (I was out of town for the other 30-degree days we've had to date); a bit of a seabreeze in the places where it wasn't blocked by buildings, which wasn't very often. (40 minutes isn't really enough to get to anywhere nice to run for more than a few minutes, so Fishermans Bend is my usual destination for a 40-minute loop: unexciting and industrial, but not much in the way of road crossings).
Somewhat to my surprise, there were no fresh political resignations when I got back.
