With many unfilled split shifts at work, the role of the spare (day relief drivers like me) has changed, for me for the better. Rather than having to work all day driving, I get a split shift where I do a little bit in the morning, a little bit in the afternoon and a big break in the middle of the day. This is really good if you have something to fill in the day. It can be rather boring if it is a non running day, there is only so much intelligence in most bus drivers.
With a rest day on Sunday, I felt pretty good setting out from work around 10 AM with the intention of finishing at home. How I got there was no problem with many options, just which way did I want to go?
Started out on the outside of Lake Tuggeranong and arrived at Athllon Dr/Drakeford Dr corner. Continued up Athllon Dr heading towards Woden when I turned into Farrer ridge and over to the Yamba Dr underpass near Isaacs. Crossed over Long Gully Road to Wanniassa Hills but instead of taking the short cut over the trig and to Gowrie, decided to cross the open paddocks that lead to the back of MacArthur. That then gives a good downhill run on Isabella Dr past Fadden Pines all the way to the bridge at Isabella Plains near Drakeford Dr. Easy to home from here as it is the way I ride the mountain bike to work except for the southerly wind which although not very strong was a touch cool.
Home for lunch, a rest and type this story before going back to work to restart at 3 pm. It finishes up being a long day not getting home tonight until about 7:45pm but it beats running in the cold and the dark.
Another good run today, only 3 seconds of stop time waiting to cross a road.
