Run 1:52:00  19.4 km (5:46 / km)
Had a proper crack at a long run this morning. Was hoping for 2 hours but didn't quite get there, mainly because my Achilles flared up about 35 minutes in, on the downhill past my old place, and was intermittently troublesome thereafter. Felt like a decent run from a running perspective, though - seemed to have a bit left in the endurance department when I called it a day. Still not totally confident that I'll be up to something which will probably be close to an hour longer (and have some steep downhills, although not on concrete) in three weeks' time, but I guess we'll find out in due course. Conditions excellent for summer, cool and cloudy.
There's quite a bit happening in my old street; in addition to the railway works which I've mentioned previously, quite a few of the old houses towards the top end of the street are in the process of being replaced by more intensive developments. (I think this is a good thing in general - if you're going to have more intensive development, it makes sense for it to be happening somewhere within easy walking distance of a station and a major employment centre, the Austin hospital).
You often underestimate how much fluid you lose on a cool day, which may be why I felt a bit wiped out later in the afternoon.
