Run ((street-O)) 7:00 [3] 1.0 km (7:00 / km)

A day riddled with minor annoyances, starting with things going slightly pear-shaped with my plan to drive over in the morning to near tonight's venue at Scotch - first the garage door opener stopped working and, by the time I gave up on trying to get it working (something I was able to do in a few minutes this evening once I'd actually downloaded and read the instructions) and opened it manually, I'd lost enough time to put myself into the worst of the traffic (and you really don't want to be driving anywhere near Melbourne's private school belt at anything resembling drop-off time).

The minor annoyances continued into the evening, with a cancelled train, a crush load on the next one, and then the first time for a while that a Wednesday night has been a lost cause inside the first couple of minutes, although I continued for a few more before convincing myself it wasn't going to get any better. (Possibly standing in an awkward position on the train may have contributed to this). This was particularly annoying because I'd identified what I think was a really good (and non-obvious) route on a map where the good routes are often non-obvious.

I did, however, manage to successfully negotiate the Scotch car park without getting squashed, and managed to restrain myself from making any comments to the person in the next parking spot who was (a) parked well over the line and (b) idling their engine continuously for the whole time I was there. (It was also a very productive day at work in between these misadventures).
