Good run. No nutrition on run, just water. Banana, two biscuits and a cup of coffee prior. Legs getting a bit tired at the last few km. Have ended up with some blistering on the left foot now, in such a strange spot. I think the socks are failing me. Had to re-adjust the right shoe as I was getting some pain on the top of the foot. The never ending drama of foot wear and care. Finally lost the toenail from about three months back.

Cold at the start, probably about 2 - 3 degrees(?) BOM says it was 0.3 at 7am in Richmond. Was just out in the singlet and shorts and it didn't feel quite that cold. Beautiful weather today. Happy enough.

Again no strength work, I keep saying I'm going to get stuck into the strength but I'm not - same way I keep saying I'm going to eat properly and don't.
