One Perfect Day

Canberra in Autumn . . . clear blue skies, gentle breezes, birds singing ~ you wouldn't be dead for quids.

Pulled up very well from yesterday, and decided to give my road bike a test ride around the Sri Chinmoy course for Sunday. My legs felt fine, and better as the ride went along. As tempted as I was to continue with another circuit through Coppins and a side trip up Mt Stromlo, I figured that I should keep things fairly low intensity today and limit the hills.

Recovered with a refreshing bath, and then walked down to hideous Mall to fill some prescriptions and run some errands. It was a perfect day for a walk.
On the (long) way home, I stopped by a local store for a drink. They didn't have my favourite (Saxby's Diet Ginger Beer), but chanced a full sugared Margaret River Chilli Cola (with Lime). Apart from the unnecessary calories, it was a great surprise - dry, with a bite that gradually built up.

A gentle recovery jog in the evening was really enjoyable, 6 minute pace, and I felt great. It was rounded out by a few laps in a too-busy pool in the evening and lots of stretching and self massage in the Steam Room and Spa.

Just a perfect day!
