What a beautiful day for the middle of winter. For those that run before sun rise at this time of the year, you have my sympathies. Lunch time was just perfect today.
Ran home and back to work, nothing to report about the running. It was after work that the funny part happened.
Recently I have been catching the bus instead of riding my mountain bike to work and home at night. Tonight I finished work in plenty of time to cross the road to catch the bus home. Not watching close enough, I jumped on the first bus that came my way. First lesson and mistake, check the route number. A little way down the road, the penny dropped, wrong bus. So what next? Get off as soon as possible and walk, too late to go back and catch the right bus.
With the Qld event now only 10 days away, a good walk of a couple of kms was a good idea. Not happy to be so stupid, but benefiting from some walking practise. But at the end of a long day, back pack and lunch bag in hand, it was a very useful exercise. Walking at 12 minutes per km, I think I could maintain that towards the end of the Qld event. Good information to be remembered.
