Run 1:49:00  19.0 km (5:44 / km)
A longer run today, mercifully feeling considerably better than yesterday after a decent night's sleep. (Made it through to 9.45 last night, with some help from the Winter Olympics, and slept until about 7, with only one interruption from the crowd disgorging from a nearby nightclub).
The forecast had been for light rain, but forecasting rain/snow boundaries in complex topography is tricky so I wasn't totally surprised to be heading out into snow - rather wet snow (occasionally mixed with sleet) which wasn't settling on anything except grass and parked cars. The first 45 minutes, much of which was gently uphill (and into the wind), was a bit of a slog but nothing in particular went wrong. That took me into some rural areas out the back of Bernex, before dropping down to the Aire "river" (in reality not much more than a drain). The path along the Aire should have been the nicest part of the run, but it was during this section that my back started to act up a bit - unusual for this to happen well into a run, and even more so for it to happen on flat ground - and I decided to head straight home rather than push it out beyond 2 hours. Picked up a bit later on, and got to see a Sunday market I hadn't known about (a place which I made a return visit to at lunch).
Not much happens in Geneva on Sunday (apart from the aforementioned market), and my planned trip up the La Saleve cablecar would have been a waste of time becuase of low cloud, so I spent most of the rest of the day on the couch in front of the Winter Olympics (unsurprisingly getting blanket coverage on Swiss TV).
It's referendum time coming up and the posters are out in force, mostly for local ballots. There's a poster which says "no to the destruction of the festivals of Geneva", which makes you wonder who is in favour of the destruction of the festivals of Geneva. (Given that the posters come from a right-wing populist outfit, I suspect the answer is "nobody", and that this is another piece of culture-war virtue-signalling of a sort which will be familiar to anyone who's recently experienced Australia Day).
