Run 40:00  6.7 km (5:58 / km)
A classic road trip run for me from Cocklebiddy - pick a random side track and do an out-and-back on it. (As it happens, this track ends up at Eyre, scene of one of my more noteworthy Nullarbor runs, but it's 56km away, not 12km like it was that time, and described in the notice at the roadhouse as "extreme 4WD"). Was pretty early in the day and didn't feel terribly awake, but the good news is that foot soreness vanished after the first two or three minutes and has not re-appeared.
Spent most of the rest of the day on the road, a lot more relaxed than the previous two days, getting closer and closer to civilisation before breaking out into farmland just short of our overnight stop of Southern Cross. Norseman's population has dropped by 50% from 2001 to 2016 and it looks like it, but it was still good to get some fruit for the first time in a couple of days (you can't take it across the WA border).
As it happens, an e-mail lobbed into my in-box today advertising Run Forrest: "Think undulating hills, flowing rivers, dense fern gullies and the cool, fresh air of the Ranges.". I think it reasonable to assume that this is the Victorian Forrest and not the WA one.
Not sure whether I should be amused or alarmed by the fact that the Institute of Public Affairs has called for a royal commission into my activities (not naming me personally, but it's my work they're referring to) as part of its election manifesto, along with such crowd-pleasing measures as selling the ABC.
