Early flight to Munich and then an hours drive to a meeting.
3 hour meeting and then back to the airport and into the hotel ready for a stupid o’clock wake up to drive 3 hours into Austria for tomorrow’s death by PowerPoint meeting.
The difference is, rather than straight into the hotel bar I was straight upstairs and changed and out so that I could get my 5km in on my ‘run day’.
Other usual traveling stuff is now left out of the case to make way. for the Ghosts, the leggings and shorts and the Dayglo Go Faster minion jacket.
Thing is, I’m used to running out in the countryside and woods and airports don’t have a great deal of running areas.
So I set off determined to find one.
And I did. And there was not much traffic which was a surprise.
Plodded along and got into my rhythmic Minion Express mode huffing and puffing along.
Wasn’t out for speed on this one. Just a comfy 5km. Ran around all over the place taking in the sights of the airport.
It was only after a short while that I realised that there really was not a lot of traffic except ones with flashing orange lights on the roof and all of the other people were also wearing hi viz yellow but we’re not runners.
Thankfully Endomondo told me I had done 3km so time to head back sharpish to the hotel.
Some chap pulled up alongside me in one of those little carts and started jabbering on and doing some form of YMCA dance as his arms were everywhere.
A quick “Sorry....sprachen Sie English?” mixed with a shrug of the shoulders and I found he spoke very good English.
Most of them four letter words but he pointed me back in the direction of the hotel.
Shower and a beer I think and wait for the police to aid my room at 3am.
Never a dull moment this running malarkey.
