    'UHHH OMG WHAT. HFHFUDDJE. WAKE UP. COME ON STAY AWAKE DAMNIT. 20 MORE MILES... WOOOOOOOOO YEEEAHHHH LALALLALALA'

    eyes start closing again...

    'BLEUHUDHDJCHFHFJ STAY IN IT. DAMNIT STOP FALLING ASLEEP, random lyrics to song'

    Im sure people are looking at me thinking... what the f... is going on...

    I see grey hairs... at the age of... ha! No you don't.

    Help. Ive got to do this daily. Lol

    ~28 miles each way, so 56 a day total.

    It's not great, but I've had worse so can't complain. Almost all motorway so takes me about 35mins each way.

    I either take the underground for 10 minutes or I cycle for 20 minutes, only live about 7 miles away so it'd cost too much to drive in comparison.

    20mile round trip, half of which is through small and windy country roads (Live down one!) Soon to be 5 mile round trip - thinking of walking! Might even get a fitbit from the fuel savings!!!

    About 15 miles each way. I did 120 miles for about three years when I lived in Scotland - in a 998cc mini too. No wonder I lost my hair.

    37 miles/1 hour each way for coming up five years now. You need audiobooks. Audiobooks have kept me sane. Podcasts are good as well, but a story you want to follow helps more.

    Takes an hour 'cos it's 37 miles of Lincolnshire roads. What's a motorway?

    Currently 0.3 miles, soon to be 29 miles each way, my economical Seat Leon does it for 63 mpg give or take so not too costly.
