    Yes, I want to be sure this is definitely the correct thread today, so I went back 8 pages on New Posts just to be sure :lol:

    Managed to do 14 miles on the bike last night, so double what I had been doing last week, flat again but still, not found any more pain for the extra mileage, still achey in the knee but hey, in comparison to what I was before this is seriously good. I'm sure one day with enough strengthening I'll find myself back to my old form, for now I'm just content to be riding again.

    Work today is consisting of ensuring 3 concrete pours go ahead with no hitches and staying out of the way of the IT guy who's coming in to try and sort out the issues some people are having with the network.

    17 miles on the heavy hybrid thing last night. Roads were twinkling in places with frost, so I had to be careful. Sky was completely clear though so I had some beautiful views of the cosmos whilst out in the countryside.

    One issue that has developed is a spot of lower back pain, on the right side of my spine. I think it's the terrible saddle on the Misceo as it has a lip at the back. It sort of protrudes upwards. I've moved the saddle quite far back along the rail, but think I cannot do any more with it. I have a new Giant saddle in the spares box though so I may pop that on the bike before the next ride.

  • Pulled the skiing gear out of the loft this morning and it still fits which is a result! Looking forward to trying out my new fancy flash vest to see if they live up to the hype.

    Pretty busy the next week and a bit so I guess the riding will take a back seat.

    Morning, darn foggy here no frost but loads of ice which made things fun. Picked up the car last night.
    First drive in was interesting its a performance one labelled as being the same weight and feel as a normal one. Pedal pressure is very high but its easy enough to live with though the other half now cant push it down fully (bonus?) pulls like a train again though so happy with that.

    No idea what else is going on to much fog. Oh said other half also acquired some chocolate bars planned nabbing one feeling the need for some fairy milk. Some heathen has changed them sodding 18g bar thinner than a pack of rizlas whats the point! I feel I need to get a Yorkie now to compensate.

    Well frenzy and frosty here so no bi-cycling.

    You know when someone asks you for some information because it's your job and you give them everything need but they ignore you and go off and ask someone who's job it isn't? Welcome to my world today.

    Sometimes I wonder why I bother. 16 years of experience and they don't bother listening. Oh well, when it all goes pear shaped then who'll be the one picking up the pieces?

    Sir - you have hit the nail on the head exactly. Needless to say, as clinical lead for Regiment, I'm not particularly happy about this as when it all goes schiser shaped it's on my neck.....

    Audit trail on this one required to cover my backside me thinks.

    Try pedalling at more than 20rpm.

    Squeaky bum week turned into 10 days. Nice surprise to find the Gulag machinery has been paid for. Wahey! Only thing left is to get the bloody thing on the truck. There was the end of the cold war and the end of the Berlin wall and now; the end of Pinno's Gulag is nigh.
    That means the pricey bottle of delicious Chablis will be consumed and we will have Trout, new potatoes and side salad on Friday. Expect even more bollox from me that evening.

    On the other plus side, I 'subcontracted' all the wood panels for the 'bus' for cutting at a joiners, so it will come back perfect and square - 19mm marine ply is a little too much for my light bench saw. So that made me really happy and will speed the process up.
    Car needs a few bushes and a touch of welding for MOT. Van is being sorted as I write this - timing belt jumped two teeth plus all 5 glow plugs were passed sell by date.

    Laters.

    No. The only one left was one that was shot last summer, so I didn't risk it. Had they had some chilli sauce, it might have been a different matter.
