I've been everywhere (man)

Well I'm certainly clocking up the kilometres in my new job!
 
Its strange to be doing lots of driving for a living, especially when you're used to being chained to a desk all day.  I think it will take a little getting used to.  Today I drove to Lismore, which took me 2 and a half hours in the rain!  I learned a valuable lesson too - and that is - stop and go to the toilet when you get a chance!!!  I made the mistake of saying to myself (as I drove past a highway service centre) "Oh I'll go at the next one..." ...
 
Famous last words...
 
There WASNT another one, until I reached Lismore!  By which time I was almost crying with discomfort because I needed to go so much!  Then I stopped at the first petrol station I found, ran up to the toilet door to find it locked!  Aaargh!  So I went inside to ask for the key - and had to wait for an elderly customer to finish paying for his fuel... and use EFTPOS... and then remember that he wanted to get $20 cash out too... meanwhile I'm hopping around behind him trying to will my bladder not to burst LOL!
 
So we wont be doing that again.  I think I have found every single McDonalds on the northside of Brisbane, and no - not for food.  They have clean toilets and easy parking!
 
Training is still going well - although I had a late night on Sunday night and consequently skipped gym on Monday morning... oops.  I made up for it by taking the dogs for a big walk in the afternoon and then doing a mini-shoulder session at home.  Today was chest and biceps, and I felt a lot stronger this week - gotta love that!
 
Anyway, better start getting dinner organised... byeeeee!

That's funny but brings back memories of my Sales days! I remember scouting out where all the good toilets were in every city. My water consumption also went way down when I was out on the road. So what are you doing work wise now?

You think that was bad for toilet run, wait till you have had children and your run will be twice as worse. Sori, don't mean to bring misery, just welcome to the 'oh my god my bladder' club. Lucky you being out on the road, I think much better than being chained to a desk and computer. C U around the gym. doris
