Run ((street-O)) 52:00  * 8.4 km (6:11 / km)
Summer Series at Mulgrave, a rare Wednesday excursion south of the Monash (combining business with pleasure, I took the opportunity on the way to check on a potential new observing site at Wantirna). Flatter than most Wednesday areas (although not quite as flat as the almost-contourless map suggested - was it a 20-metre interval?), and slightly less genteel than most Wednesday areas, at least at the point near #20 with the probably-harmless-but-slightly-discomfort-inducing bloke standing in the middle of the road with a crushed can in one hand and a beer bottle in the other.
I knew this would be a long one when it was 17 controls (B is normally 13 or 14) and the first few legs weren't particularly short. (Often the courses get a bit shorter at this end of the season as sunset gets earlier, but the last two have been the longest of the lot). Running probably slightly improved on last week, or perhaps I've just got a bit more systematic about settling my back down when it needs it. Route was OK, I think.
This part of town turns into a pumpkin early; the eating options after 7.30 appeared to be Maccas, Maccas or Maccas. (I went back to Fairfield instead).
