The Great Run to Work Adventure, Part 2

BURSTS! into June after a disappointing May where my resolve started to waver.

Well, I am here, which means that I made it out of bed and to work this morning, I must have looked like a steam train this morning, especially weighting at the lights…I think I could have got lost in my own fog. And don’t worry Blkbox, running to work is not a race for me…both yesterday and today were supposed to be LSD recovery runs, though as stated in the previous post I got a little excited last night, but this morning easy does it, especially as it took a while for my legs to warm up in the chill of the morning. I ran past one of those electronic temperature signs with about 5k to go and it said 5°C so not freezing but cold enough.
Ran a little further this morning than last night, trying to avoid running alongside the Main North Rd for as long as possible (I think I have it down to 800m of running on the verge, its a good couple of metres of verge so don’t worry), total 11.8km in 1hr18mins.
It felt great walking down the corridor from the change room to the Engineering Department after having a shower and feeling all refreshed, what a great way to start the day!

    You’ve almost lost 10kgs since the start of the year. Awesome!

    Running to work!! I am impressed. And yes it was chilly this morning. I couldn’t decide whether it was more dangerous to run with my glasses on or off! (they tend to fog). Bought a pair of $6 gloves from Kmart – now chaffing at the bit for another cold morning!

    Mate that sounds great. Wish I could run to work but,
    a) 24km is just a little too far,
    b) I have to take too much crap.

    You lucky thing! Sounds like so much fun and kills two birds with one stone! For me the 30km each way is juat a little too far, and we dont have showers either… oh well…
