Run 1:50:00  21.1 km (5:13 / km)
The trip over had its share of minor annoyances and mishaps, starting at the Melbourne end when someone in the next row of seats on the bus threw up spectacularly, then continuing at the Perth end when my taxi voucher didn't work (this after negotiating a half-hour taxi queue; Perth generally has decent public transport but the airport is a big black hole in the network) and a glass fell out of the fridge where I was staying and shattered comprehensively. I also discovered that the place I'm staying in doesn't have very thick walls courtesy of the Bollywood music next door at 5am...
Once I was running it was an OK, but not sparkling, session, and never really tired - all those 2+ hour runs of the last fortnight must have done me some good. Not that strong uphill. Started out due west from West Perth (initially along the railway line bike track), then a loop through Bold Park - after three attempts I still haven't quite worked out the track network there - back through Shenton Park and finished through the top end of Kings Park. A little longer than I'd planned.
The last half of this run was in steady light rain, although I missed the main meteorological excitement of the day, a lunchtime tornado in the northern suburbs - was doing a talk at the Bureau at the time and could see some impressively angry clouds in that direction.
Saw it reported last night that a prostitute felt 'screwed over' by Channel 9. I guess she'd know what it feels like.
