Run 1:02:00  10.8 km (5:44 / km)
Heidelberg along the river to Finns Reserve and back - a routine run back in the day, which I succeeded with at the third attempt in recent weeks. Was always battling here and almost gave it away a few minutes in, but settled down enough to pull through and was good enough at the end to take it past an hour. Had to walk across the Finns Reserve bridge (a narrow suspension bridge) due to other people but that probably wasn't a bad time for a break. Longest I've done since last July; things have fallen a long way. Reasonable number of people out, but no groups so the message is obviously getting through to most people (though the beach shots from last Friday looked worse than they actually were; telephoto lenses will do that).
Headed out in the afternoon to have a look to see if there was any potential in the bit of forest out Toolern Vale way which I saw from the air coming in from an unusual direction in January. (Had a few misgivings about this, but surely there's not much difference between not interacting with anyone in a house and not interacting with anyone in a car?). The good news is that from a distance it looks quite large, not too steep and not too thick, the bad news is that it has no road access and is almost certainly private property (and many of the adjoining properties are posh horse studs), so I think we can scrub that one off the list. (The area around Toolern Vale is a mix of the very posh and the derelict - the latter are probably properties long since abandoned whose owners are waiting for their value to instantly increase 100-fold at the stroke of a planning minister's or councillor's pen, a phenomenon which has been known to lead to the distribution of well-stocked brown paper bags or the digital equivalent thereof).
