Memorable day..

I could not have asked for a better day. As planned I did my first run of the week, 13km in 1hr 22minutes. After that it was like any other regular day, I hoped to do two more runs during the week, one each on Friday and Saturday. As I was about to leave for the day, one of my colleagues told me that today was the 5th day of Ganpati festival (which means bad traffic as people celebrate on the streets, during Visarjan (immersion of the Ganesha idol). It suddenly struck me that I had my running gear with me thanks to the morning run and I could actually run on my way back home (and not sweat it out in traffic). I decided to arm myself with a nice neat carbohydrate snack and then took off for home. I did the return journey in 1hr 22mins 30secs. This was my first back to back 10+km run on the same day, it felt really good doing 26kms today in two splits.
