Cool Sheet I Did Today
It's been a hectic last couple of days, between month-end at work, trips to Mafikeng and some important meetings, I ain't had time to tell you how awesome I been... until now.
I did the crazy thing and walked all the way from fiance's office in Randburg to my office in Sandown. It was actually about 9.5km's, I think #fibit inflated the distance a bit when I got lost went to check out some sweet cribs along my route. Crazy as it may sound, I hav perfectly valid reasons why I did it. Firstly because I can - I'm actually pretty fit and run long distances frequently. Secondly I figured I'd rather waste an hour of my morning working on my fitness instead of sit in traffic. And most importantly, because traffic to access Sandton has been rather awful lately and I ain't about that life... I mean, check me out:
I also commuted back to Randburg in the afternoon. Took the Gautrain bus and experienced the other side of this #EcoMobility stuff. I have to admit it was a bit of a mind-screw driving against the traffic (also I think Gautrain drivers are ex-taxi drivers who are struggling to go 'straight'). All in all it was aight. I'm not entirely convinced taking public transport was faster nor convinient, I am however entirely convinced that it is less stressful.
I'll do this maybe once or twice a week. And hopefully by the third time I'll even run the whole way.
