Run 1:18:00  13.0 km (6:00 / km) +300m 5:23 / km
Most ambitious yet in terms of terrain, starting out by heading up Mt. Eden (predictably spectacular views, and predictably large numbers of people using it for morning exercise). Pleased that my injuries didn't cause any issues either up or down, although my fitness for the climb was definitely lacking (no doubt a consequence of not having done any proper hills for weeks). Quads a bit iffy for a while after coming off the mountain but ran that off (a good sign for Two Bays, where I'll have a hill half as big again to deal with early on). Bit of a plod on the last section, coming back initially through Remuera (a suburb with a reputation as Auckland's poshest, though I think these days it's a bit like the North Shore in Sydney - solidly upper-middle class but the really serious money is closer to the water), then past the Domain. Had initially had thoughts of 90, but thought it best not to push both climb and distance boundaries in the same run; will have the chance for more on Sunday. Pulled up OK.
Again plenty of traffic interruptions; it seems fairly unavoidable here in the inner suburbs. One also has to keep one's wits about one because of some of the driving, such as people (illegally) failing to give way when turning into a side street, possibly because they're distracted by talking (illegally) on their mobile phone.
