Cold!

Log burner on at home, boot camp later followed by a bloodbag being taken out ready for the next big ra**... Err, I mean giving blood followed by free biscuits.

  • Seems to be back from the dead for the time being.

    Woke up with knees feeling totally shot and no idea why. Might go for a run at lunchtime to try and sort them out.

    Agreed to do the Snowdon marathon on Saturday, despite not running for ages and full of cold, knew I shouldn’t have drank last night.

    Going to try and avoid the pub later

    Idiot.

    I did some running hill reps in the dark last night, first run in weeks and my hip flexor feels a bit sore today. Nope, no more running.

    I've spent the morning trying to get some fancy looking maps onto my Surface book so I can look professional when I'm out avec le client tomorrow and Friday. On the plus side, first time out of the office in about 3 months so that's good. Staying away tomorrow night with Italy sailing guy so there should be a good few beers involved
  • 8.5km for me last night and I definitely need some new trainers.

    All good things come to an end. Waiting for the train to ferry us back to London, where we can battle through the rush hour hordes with a couple of big backpacks :twisted:. It's been like summer down here. Blue skies, no wind, mucking about on the beach.

    Straight back to work tomorrow, at least it's only for a couple of days...

    it's back, it's back, as a matter of fact, it's back, also looks like weather is heading back to rain-based

    so far, coffee, annoying things, kill, next coffee, meeting, bail

    Yay, the forum's back :) Glad I'm not the only one who was having problems.

    Busy day on the corporate hamster wheel today, including a revised push for global domination starting to take shape. Sadly my local branch of 'Eat' with the hot Eastern European lady that manages it, closes tomorrow. Boo hiss.

    I guess HD was lucky with his timing this morning.
    Bit fresh out first thing, cold toes, fingers and ears. Had a flat last night, noticed it before I left so I fixed it in the office, rather squishy again this morning so pumped it up and rode in. Took the wheel off when I got here so I would remember to fix it during my lunchtime. It's still fully inflated, no hint of squishiness.
    Enjoy buying your lunch today Stevo. No problem getting pictures for us as it's not a problem if you get barred.
    Pub later.

    Afternoon finally got home and on here. First yahoo then BR having problems yesterday through to today. Did cannock blue on the CX bike with some mates, boy did it get cool. Running later maybe, hopefully the excess baggage I'm carrying will continue to disappear with the effort I'm putting in.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Checked the tyre before leaving work, it lost no pressure in 10 hours. Nearly home and had a bit of a twitch going round a corner, thought the tyre had gone down again. Riding along looking at the front tyre and all is well, then felt a bump through the back as I rode over a tiny bump. Ballcocks!!!

    Get a drone.

    Me found the fault me. Unraveled yards of loom and the bad section is cut out and new wire soldered in.
    Now to put it back together.

    Went for a swim with Shorty. Trying to get her not to doggy paddle. Swam a few lengths.

    Laters.

    PS: Get new tyres and tubes VN, you tight git. Surely you have access to loads of tyre weld?

    VN time to go tubeless.

    That's what I was thinking. Have been lucky in that respect until the last couple of days. Current tyres won't but if new tyres needed might as well. I think the rims will, Velocity Blunt SL. I put tubeless tape on when I built them thinking I would go that route.
    Now, which tyres? Had Vittoria Voyager Hyper Pro which have been the best compromise of tough and quick I've come across to date.

    From experience I'd go for IRC pro formula xguards, been absolutely faultless. Expensive yes but I've used mine for 2yrs or so for duathlons, sportives, commutes and general training rides.

    Perhaps you should try cycling more than 4 times a year.

    Second this. Using these last year and this, no issues at all.

    Thanks, just had a look at those and they do a 28 but not a 32, I've been enjoying the comfort of fat squishy tyres. Should I drop to a 28? Alternatively, found Panaracer Gravel Kings at Merlin in a 32 and tan wall discounted to £28. Anyone know if they are any good?

    Ditto.

    Though I have been swimming lots in my defence.
