Run 10:00 [3] 1.6 km (6:15 / km)

A little bit better again than yesterday, but still enough soreness to be a concern once on a slope. It feels like the sort of thing I could push through if I really wanted to, but I'll still want to get through a run without much trouble either tomorrow or Saturday before taking the plunge for 27k on Sunday.

Spotted an ageing sticker on a car during this run "Is that the truth or did you read it in the Herald-Sun?". At the moment, it's not so much that what they're reporting isn't the truth, it's that it's not the whole truth, and that relatively minor crimes are being given saturation coverage if they fit a certain narrative (of the four incidents that have been on high rotation, only one of them is serious enough for the perpetators to be likely to get jail time if convicted). At least the Herald-Sun, unlike the Daily Fail Mail, has not yet tried to incite a riot themselves as far as I know.

Interesting discussion at the end of the day at work which I came in on, on the subject of whether people orientated their maps when navigating (on street/road maps or the like). Most of them do, but the one who doesn't is the one who was trained as an operational forecaster (and hence used to thinking spatially).

(I guess most people here know that I'm one of the handful of serious orienteers who doesn't orientate their map - by the time I knew any different, I already had a technique I was comfortable with. I've done some testing which indicates I have an unusually high capacity to rotate images mentally, although there may be some chicken-and-egg in that).
