Day 97: A Walkabout in Adelaide

Day 97

Bonjour Shredders!

I woke up today looking forward to a day of seeing Adelaide, but felt a headache as I got out of bed. Looking out the window, the sky was overcast, not clear and sunny as had been forecasted. I made my breakfast, took some medication, then went back to sleep to let my headache subside.

Two and a half hours later, I woke up to a bright spring day and just a trace of a headache (the kind which you feel only when you move your head suddenly). Encouraged by this, I packed my daytripper bag and had my meal, then crossed the road to the train station, bound for the city.

Central Adelaide is laid out in a grid pattern with wide streets and green squares within, and entirely surrounded by parklands. I mostly just walked around the city streets and ended up spending time in a pedestrianized street mall, Rundle Mall. Among the interesting things I saw there were a group of bronze sculptures masquerading as pigs.

I also visited the Migration Museum, an interesting exhibit which looks into how migration has shaped Australia’s past and present.

Upon returning in the evening, I read up on the Stronglifts 5X5 Strength Program, as recommended by Mark of Dad Rewrite (programming) blog.  I haven’t read it completely yet, but it looks like a very good program to follow as I want to focus on gaining strength and mastering good form to build a good base for my future missions.  By tomorrow, I should be able to decide which program to follow and write out my mission goals.

Eat clean, train hard, and expect success!

  1. So fun to read about your walkabout. The piggys are adorable. So glad you have a fun place to walk. That´s just what I like. You can see things, but still go pretty fast, and people to check out too. Have a good Sunday!
