It's all in the plan

Ever wondered if everything that happens in your life is all planned out? Either by fate or by some unknown force above us?

Li-Ann and I watched The Adjustment Bureau on the weekend. The movie was about a politician played by Matt Damon, who falls in love with a dancer played by Emily Blunt, but mysterious forces are keeping them apart, as it wasn't according to their life plan.

A pretty cool movie with an entertaining concept. Also made me wondered if my life was planned out for me to be a triathlete. But I can certainly relate to the fact that we make choices in our everyday life, that would change how our life pans out in the future.

One of the major life changing choices I made was the decision to study in Perth. 8 years on and I'm still in Perth, with my beautiful future wife, making a reasonable living for myself, as well as fitting in a minimum training regime for long distance triathlon in a very conducive environment.

We had quite an activity filled weekend. A friend's birthday celebration dinner on Saturday followed by a visit to a bar in East Perth. The Deville's Pad was quite a unusual experience, with the ghastly decor and alternative crowd. One of the rare late nights I had, as I didn't need to run the next morning, still laying off running for another week.

Although I did an 80km ride the morning before, in pretty windy conditions. Was satisfied that I managed a reasonable pace of 29.2kph. Looking forward to start running next weekend.

I thought that show was quite silly actually. Didn't like how it turned into a romantic. I expected it to be like Inception, with a much thicker plot than "You need our hats to open these doors". haha...
