Run 2:01:00  25.0 km (4:50 / km)
Left myself on Melbourne time, sort of, last night - something which makes getting up at 5 a bit easier to take.
Route for this one went broadly up the coast from Cottesloe, except for a detour inland to get around the Swanbourne military base (I imagine going along the beach is an option when it's light). The coast road seems, unsurprisingly, to get a fair bit of use from cyclists in the early morning (although not quite as much so as beach Road in Melbourne). Turned inland at Floreat, then a section on the bush tracks through Bold Park (a more extensive section than I'd planned on because the track on my map exiting at the SE corner didn't exist and I ended up doing almost a full circuit) before heading back.
Nice morning for a run and I usually enjoy exploring. The run had its moments, especially in the middle, but I was a bit down on strength on the hillier bits, and was hanging on a bit in the last half-hour.
Spotted a sign for a new development at Floreat "only seconds from beach". Well, yes, but it's a three-figure number of seconds (it's about 2km inland). Dodgy claims by real estate marketers have, however, been with us for at least 1000 years, since Erik the Red returned from a barren icy island in the North Atlantic and called it "Greenland".
The workshop is in the very posh surrounds of the Peppermint Grove yacht club, a place where you could start a riot by expressing support for the Resources Super Profits Tax. The views out the window were very nice and you could look at a lot of expensive real estate if the talks were getting boring (and reflect on how much of said expensive real estate would be rendered worthless by a metre of sea level rise).
