strapping conduit, proper support?

Is there a standard way to support conduit that doesn't sit flush with solid surface?

For example, I ran conduit along the side of the floor joists above my basement.

One of the joists were sistered with another leaving a 2" offset. I wasn't able to make the standard offset bend because of an obstruction. So to make up that 2" where the conduit ran unsupported for about 4' I screwed a piece of 2x4" behind the pipe and applied my strap to it.

Is that sufficient for support?

What other ways could someone apply a strap to a conduit when the pipe isnt sitting flush with something?

Not exactly what I would have done, but that sounds sufficient to me.

I would have used a larger offset.
