I am tired.

edited December 2012 in The bottom bracket
Getting up at 6:30am and going to sleep at 12am has being an apocalyptic disaster on my body clock, I have to have a 30 minute nap at around 12pm then I am fine.

My bicycle weighs almost 30kg and I need to pull it up Bury New Rd every day, and I stupidly left the pannier on and went for a 40 mile ride to Alderly Edge and back, got a puncture near the Crimbo Market, legs feel wrecked, only done 110 miles on it in total this week.

    Why do you not all care, I care how you all slept, what you had for tea and what you did last night, and what you are doing now, and what you are wearing now. Yes.

    watching peoples actions through their windows is closer to stalking than caring :wink:

    I don't wish to appear a pedant, but the OP doesn't make sense as there is no such thing as 12am nor 12pm.

    There are no standards established for the meaning of 12 a.m. and 12 p.m. It is often said that 12 a.m. Monday is midnight on Monday morning and 12 p.m. is mid-day. This puts all the times beginning with 12 and ending with a.m. in the same one-hour block, similarly with those ending with p.m. It can also be argued that by the time you have seen a clock showing 12:00 at mid-day it is already post meridiem, and similarly at midnight it is already ante meridiem. Times in the first hour of the day are sometimes given as, for example, 00:47 a.m., with 00:00 a.m. corresponding to midnight, but with a time twelve hours later given as 12:47 p.m.

    Another convention sometimes used is that, since 12 noon is by definition neither ante meridiem nor post meridiem, then 12 a.m. refers to midnight at the start of the specified day (00:00) and 12 p.m. to midnight at the end of that day (24:00). Given this ambiguity, the terms 12 a.m. and 12 p.m. should be avoided.

    That's why you are tired Will.

    That's what I meant - his post was confusing due to his lack of precision. Besides which, he seems to be confusing this forum with facebook where people seem to actually give a $hit what you're thinking/eating/doing/etc. at any given moment.

    most parents with small kids get this much sleep and often not in one stretch - it's probably the lack of sunlight cos it's dark most of the day

    are you the guy who rides a white steel framed bike coming out of manchester in the mornings? I'm the bloke going in the other direction on the Dolan, I'll wave if I can but if I don't it's cos I'm preoccupied with avoiding death :)

    clearing the unneccesary sh1te out of the bag and rationalising tools is a big bonus

    I ride a red carrera with a pannier on the right side. I was setting off around 7:15- 7:30 going down Bury New Rd.

    You'd not see me anyway, because I ride faster than the speed of light.

    I am currently sucking a lollypop. If I began at 12pm in Massachusetts and continued for 12 hours and 17mins whilst pedalling at 89rpm on a 53/18 at which point would if start to give a sheeeite about this. I have been gone some time, but glad to see nothing has changed willhub is still a moaning barstard... :D

    Meridien please. Meridiem is latin for something like the god of the sea. Neptune that would be.
  • team47bteam47b Posts: 6,424
    ante Meridiem is the latin for before midday, Meridian is english, Meridien is a brand name of an hotel chain

    Are you questioning my spelling or my pedantidnessness? :roll:

    Pedantry
  • Sod tired. I'm just fecking pissed off how quickly fitness disappears if you're inactive. 10 days off the bike with that bloody cold and I'm completely rubbish. 7 miles today, cold but lovely, not windy. Slow, though admittedly I'm not pushing hard while I'm still not quite 100%, but felt just as knackered as the last time I did 40. :evil:
    Is the gorilla tired yet?

    Spelling actually - either yours or mine. Your pedantry is acceptable.
