5.45am Awaken in the cosy, could-be-anywhere environment of a Travel Inn. Stagger to shower and wash away bleariness.
6.30am Meet partner and check equipment. Drive to start point of morning peak run.
7.00am Total concentration required to stay on target as the perfect average vehicle. No talking, no radio, no distraction at all.
9.30am Breakfast at, ideally, Morrisons or Asda. Big and unresolved debate about which does the better bite.
10.15am Start off-peak run.
12.30pm Lunch - explore locality.
1.30pm Finish off-peak run, if not completed in morning. Fight 'nodding dog' syndrome as the early morning start starts to take its toll. Drink industrial quantities of tea.
4.15pm Evening peak run starts. Begin looking forward to a Travel Inn supper.
7.00pm Track down hotel. Read, run - do something not involving cars. Make light conversation with fellow Travel Inn nomads. Avoid dwelling overlong on day-to-day nature of task in hand.
9.30pm or 10pm Copy data from laptop to disk and set up for following day's work. Sleep.
