Lots of work and no real training today. However, I have a fact! It turns out badgers are super clean creatures, and won't poo inside their dens. Instead they dig a communal latrine outside the den, and the whole family/clan use the one toilet! How cool is that?!
It makes them at least 1000x better than koalas, which are just the most disgusting creatures in my opinion.

Standard blah loop. Felt pretty lousy but good to get off the sofa after a hard day watching tennis, cycling and women's EM football.
Not much to report, but remembered that last time i ran this way i saw a badger!! I think i forgot to say! It was sooo cool! I guesd the norwegian equivalent of a wombat.
...will have to google to see if badgers have any interesting poo facts...

Went for a day out to the swedish coast. Really enjoyable, tried my best to avoid any traffic and ended up with a complete mix of tarmac, gravel and dirt tracks, some nice single tracks...and some shitty turns out its not a track bike carrying ;)
Got within a few m of a moose at one point, which was maybe a bit close for comfort. It was in the foliage next to the track, but luckily ambled off away from the track, not onto it!
Had a couple of stops along the way; a banana stop on a nice beachy spot - immediately interrupted by a boat coming around the corner of the fjord :( and a lunch stop up on the coastal cliffs, tucked on the other side of a spur from the wind and the nude bathers :) got a bit dehydrated about 3hrs in, which unfortunately coincided with the dodgiest bit of track...which i lost... Ended up bailing to the road through some head high gras and nettles. Then tried to rejoin the track further along, as Nordby traffic is as bad on the road as it is in the shops...i got away from the traffic, but the track wasn't worth finding. Got some bike carrying training though.
Super glad i remembered money and could fill up with water at svinesund. Then spun my way home.
