Saturday Mar 18 #

8 AM

Run 45:00 [3] 7.4 km (6:05 / km)

Earlier than I normally would go on a Saturday given the forecast; it was still early enough that the wind was cool rather than hot and it ended up quite a pleasant run. Started out on the back track towards Number Sixteen then back through the streets, picking up a couple on the north side of Melbourne Road. After a slow start in the soft sand bits, had some nice sections in the middle (particularly on the track amongst the moonah trees near Tasman Drive), but quads starting to feel it a bit towards the end and decided to stop at 45 minutes (still OK for the day after something longer); there are bigger fish to fry tomorrow.

Occurred to me going through the intersection of Andrea and Belinda that this may well have been another of those places (I've seen a few) where a developer or councillor named the streets after his daughters (in the 1960s it definitely would have been 'his'). The neighbouring Rodney and Nerissa may have come from that source too, although the latter sounds a bit out-there for that era.

And one of the signs you've been in a workplace for a while is when you start having colleagues who weren't born when you first started. I haven't reached that milestone yet (at least if you only count when I was officially a Bureau employee and not the four years before that when I was a PhD student partly based there), but it's getting closer - our latest recruit in climate was only a few months old when I joined.
