Run ((street-O)) 55:00 [3] *** 8.8 km (6:15 / km)

My first weekend for a long time on the Mornington Peninsula aligned with the debut of the Mornington Peninsula park/street series. (This wasn't entirely coincidental - I applied a bit of presidential influence to get the event deferred a week from its originally scheduled date so Melbourne-based people could get to it). This was at Rye, mostly in the flat first few blocks in from the beach - I think it would be more interesting further inland where the street pattern is less regular and there are more dunes.

I was still managing my body closely, which meant walking on the hills (not many of these) or every few minutes on the flat bits to keep my calves under control. This seemed to work, with a similar feeling during and post-run to yesterday. Back ordinary in the first 10-15 minutes but OK thereafter. I knew from early on in the piece that I was going to get them all within 60 minutes, and from there the route choice was mostly pretty straightforward.

Unsurprisingly, there were plenty of people down here today. I'd always planned to go home after dinner and the mid/late afternoon traffic did nothing to disabuse me of that idea (it was fine by the time I set off).
