With a change to my working hours after a shift spill last month, I again go to work not knowing what I will be doing. It may be an easy day when everyone turns up or it may be 14 hour day going home very late. Sometimes, you can be lucky and get a split shift with a 4 hour break in the middle of the day. This is perfect especially in winter for running. No need to run in the cold, just wait until the temp climbs at bit, the sun comes out and the ice melts and away you go for however long you want. Still plenty of time for a shower, lunch and to relax. In summer even time for a swim in the river for recovery.
Today, as was yesterday, a split shift means time for distance. A bit easier today so I headed down to the river, along towards Point Hut, up Woodcock Dr to Gordon, then over to the Conder side of Tuggie Hill. Around to the sub station behind Theodore, follow the track to Calwell oval, past the shops and finish at home.
Stop for lunch at home, also had some at work before I went out on the run, then get back in time to take the kids home after school. Great day out today, nice weather, a good run course with a bit of everything, easier than yesterday. I could get used to this, but then someone won't turn up at work tomorrow and out the door go all these great plans. Oh well, such is life.
