A run and stuff


This morning I got up at six thirty, has breakfast, rode to the East Coast Park and ran a 5k in 20 minutes and 1 second. After the marathon and after not doing significant speed work for the last month and a half, it was nice to get back to it with my fastest time in over a year. Now if I can just cut a couple of seconds off…

I rode home, exhausted, and then we went out again. I had all the fun of going to IKEA to buy kitchen and bathroom stools, while my wife placated two insane kids at the library. I then went to the library to rendezvous with them, we all went home and I fell asleep putting Destroyer down, waking up in a puddle of my own drool.

We took the girls out on the cable car this afer, before buying them ice cream. This kindness inspired La Serpiente to both yell at, and ignore us, for the next two hours. What a lovely kid. Eventually we gave up negotiating and put her in the bath, and then I ran out to go to a peranakan restaurant in Katong with friends. Katong is a really fun area (an ex-red light district, which seems to be the case for most neighbourhoods I go to) with lots of bars and cafes open late. All too soon it was time to go home and see about rescuing my wife from our demented spawn, but I got back to find everyone slumbering. So that was easy, I suppose.
