Run 34:00 [3] 5.8 km (5:52 / km)

Found a creative way to injure myself this morning - got up in the early hours of the morning and trod on my trousers on the floor, and more significantly their belt buckle. The end result of this was a cut on the sole of my right foot.

From past experience of injuries in this area (most significantly when I ran the last hour of an NT Championships on rocky ground without a functional sole on my shoe), I suspected I'd be able to run on it on even ground. This proved more or less to be the case, although it made its presence felt on anything which wasn't smooth straight concrete (I certainly knew about it when I hit a stretch of bluestone). It was a pretty ordinary run though, and 10 minutes shorter than I'd originally been hoping for, but getting something on the board was something on the first day after an injury. Past experience suggests it will take its time healing, but should be OK to run on (whether I'm prepared to take it into terrain - which we will now have a slightly wider choice of - on the weekend is an open question).

Made good use of weather forecast information to make sure I got out reasonably early. It looked like it would get ugly after 9am and it did. (If things had gone to plan, I would have spent today at the Bungle Bungles).
