    Plastic bag ban.....

    Perhaps a wax coated or something so wet items don't destroy them on the way home? Gratefully I am not particularly inclined to go to establishments which search your bag on the way in or serve only in plastic cups.

    Plastic bag ban.....

    I bought a cocktail in a tall glass the other evening and asked for a straw, was denied. I didn't enjoy drinking my cocktail without a straw and a paper one might have been reasonably able to be offered instead. We ended up googling stainless ones which I can buy and keep in my handbag for such emergency situations. I also collected my first woolies pickup and paid the $1 for the resuable bags. I didn't actually realise they were intended to be reusable but did note how thick they were. I will probably end up with a lot of them which probably won't end up being used terribly often as although they are tick, I still don't think they are tough enough for particularly regular use. I also think people will still use them as single use. I suppose I would really like to see 'plastic' bags which are a large percentage recyclable and break down rapidly to minimise the impact on wildlife.

    What training did you do today?

    I was supposed to run an hour yesterday. Seems my back injury is flaring up due to too much work and house renovations while trying to train too, so instead we just did a 60 min walk around the neighbourhood. This morning we were going to try and run again but while the back is slightly better than yesterday, not nearly enough to consider a run. I've even been banned from working on the house today.

    Yesterday me and Stiki did a trail run, he looped back a couple of times so ran a little bit further than my 7.95ks and this morning we went out for a chilly 30ks on the bike.

    The Mental Health thread

    Bloody hell. Good you were there to be able to be a calm presence when the bloke's friend was obviously unable to be under the circumstances. And great your son was able to be so responsible and helpful at such a tender age. Life is definitely precious and so very fragile. At work I see those who lose theirs through accident or incident and I also see those who piss it away with their lifestyle choices and other stupidity. Both circumstances make me mad in different ways.

    I finished my 4th nightshift this morning and last night was effing madness. I attempted parkrun. I ran a k and a bit then turned around and walked back to the car. I am currently eating pizza shapes and am about to go to bed for a few hours. #shiftworksucks

    Don't worry, we're starting training this week too. It'll be a long build but hopefully it'll be thorough for a change.

    Today we headed out for a 90 min easy bike. We got a bit lost and ended up doing 2 hours of easy bike. About 37 sad little ks. lol

    Stikman and I did an parkrun, which was our first outing after the man-flu we barely survived. We both came 4th in our age groups by a happy coincidence!
