I'm training to run 10K in an hour, and things are running along nicely. To spice things up I decided to run to the neighbouring town of Westendorp, eight kilometers further.
Now, Westendorp isn't very nice. Westendorp is mostly a big road with some houses scattered on the side. But, Westendorp boasts a Pancake House which serves really nice cups of coffee!
According to my training program I had to run 5 minutes, then walk 1. While running I calculated I'ld have to repeat myself 8 times, and then I'ld get my nice coffee!
I ran, and I ran, and I ran some more, but after I had done my eight repeats I didn't even see Westendorp glimmering on the horizon! Flustered I repeated the sequence of 5 minutes running/1 minute walking. Then I repeated it some more, and then I could finally order my cup of coffee.
I was sipping my coffee while I mulled over the fact that, obviously, I'm even slower than I thought. Then the truth hit me! They must have moved Westendorp! About two kilometers to be precise! I leaned back a little dazed.
I wonder if the government knows about this.
