    ciao

    bambini at school, tdv at work. bit of dog walking, bit of weights, bit of eating. may put the back wheel into the tt bike to put it into the turbo trainer.

    Morning All. Dog walker, parcel packer and delivery wallah. Family out, expecting parcel so out on bike hopefully once that's delivered. Beer or two laters as well. Forgot to mention, whilst damp here the pavements are slick with frost, even dog wasn't happy, and hes got 4x4.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Morning
    Trying to decide where to go out on the fun bike today. The heatwave never came yesterday, and it's still a bit soggy outside.

    I'm pretty sure that hind legs on dogs are stronger than the front.
    70/30 split methinks.

    Nice and sparkly crisp. No rain, no wind.
    Tomorrow however, is a deluge and that means I will not be going to Weegie land. Maybe Weegie land will be washed away just like the popcorn thread.

    Laters.

    Hound walked, about to go and do some weights and text a mate to see if he wants to sell his IT 250 lunaticbike.

    Pinno - I've asked a question about that T Bar thing on the turbo thread. How does it work? Are rollers that much better than a turbo trainer?

    Rollers are all about high cadence.

    Turbo Trainers give you variable resistance. I like the rollers for sheer souplesse and fitness - it's all high cadence stuff. If you are fit and not feeble like me, you don't need the T bar. In fact, sans T bar making those micro adjustments to 'stay on board' strengthens core stability and balance.

    So given the room, I would have both because you can get quite a work out in 30 mins on a TT but I can sit on a pair of rollers for an hour or more quite happily.

  • HD in bike riding shocker over the weekend! https://www.strava.com/activities/2020121650

    Normality has now resumed and I'll be back to rushing about like a loon. One of our retired directors died on Friday so looks like a Christmas funeral will be on the cards, not great for anyone really.

    Oh yes, I've got a chip timed 5km on the track tonight... Great.

    Another day in the Kingdom of the Bland. What will I do with my bag of popcorn?

    Today will be mostly pottering about doing random domestic chores (maybe from the list I have been given, maybe not) while steeling myself in prep for a late afternoon / early evening hit on a Costco to lay in the festive supplies. I foresee shopageddon ahead.

    Greetings diverse and inclusive people. Or even "personalities", who knows?

    WFH today as Mrs is unwell and "we" are packing for Paris. Le depart est mercredi. J'ai mon gilet jaune.

    Firefighting a bit in the run up to Christmas, but I reckon I'll have it all sorted by Wednesday.

    Hoping that I don't succumb to Mrs H3's horrible cold, though it's more or less inevitable that it'll claim me just as I finish work.

    Making sure my innards are a hostile environment for lurgy by tipping port & mince pies down my neck every so often.

    Small break in mince pie consumption. A Japanese guy who I did a piece of work for has brought me some "Tokyo Bananas" back from Japan in appreciation.

    They are little wrapped banana shaped cakes filled with a banana cream. Really quite tasty, and a change from mince pies. :D

    Afternoon fellow observers of the new PC correctness reich.

    OH has been dispatched to her parental units (or rather she drove off) so its me and Le Doge till the 29th so very little is going to get done.

    I picked up my first bottle of Japanese Whiskey at the weekend, could I sample it with some of that Japanese cake?
