Run 1:45:00  18.0 km (5:50 / km)
Didn't sleep that well coming off an OA Board meeting (not that it was a bad meeting, more that there were quite a few detailed discussions and it took a while for my mind to wind down). A bit of a half-before-dawn slog, although good in patches, especially coming down through the Rosanna Parklands (once the start of the last lap, now a revitalising influence at halfway). Quads suffered a bit crossing the Eaglemont Hills and so-so from there. Still good to get a solid midweek long(ish) run under my belt, even if it wasn't on the day I'd originally planned to do it, and another positive is that there was no sign of hip trouble on the steep Macleod downhill.
Going through the front in the first half, adding (mostly light) rain to the darkness, although the cold winds on winter's coldest day to date didn't really kick in until later.
And one of life's little mysteries solved: why I'd occasionally see, at 7-ish in the morning, a bus with destination sign 'Mansfield' heading towards the city. It turns out the company's depot is in Heidelberg Heights, from where I saw such a bus emerging this morning.
