    Will be having fun today de-gunking the fish pond pump and filter before winter proper sets in. This may be messy, but not in a good way. Also need to fit the new astro turf to the muddy bits of the lawn, this could also be a bit messy.

  • Day out as passenger in the convertible being whizzed round the countryside. Stopped for lunch in a town that looks to have been taken over by feral hipsters, but still good.

    Turns out I'm not great as a passenger in a car these days on long winding roads.

    Di2 (roll).

    Sunny here on the West coast. Lovely view of Arran and Ailsa Craig. Tricky in soft play area, Shorty swimming. Me coffee and cake.
    Hopefully, we've worn them out for peace later.

    I would say etap Pinno, brilliant gears , I carry a spare battery just in case

    Rotten morning , rolling into the afternoon mist and rain, I managed 50 minutes on the rollers early absolutely knackered

    yeah etap, it was green last time i checked, battery will be 4 years old in 2-3 months, that and the nippy weather may mean it's not lasting so well now

    Afternoon folks. Localish sportive dispatched, swimming in places. Will be checking my BB as a totally immersed in dirty crappy flood water a few times. Definitely character building in places. Beer laters

    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Evening
    Half marathon done this morning, rained for half of it, got back and the organisers had left everyone's bags out in the rain :/ Council decided to more than double the car parking cost for the event, nothing worse than a pack of angry runnists.

    Just been to Nandos for an obscene amount of food to start fattening up for Christmas.

    Well done on the half marathon, I try and do the one's with free parking. I never leave anything with the event organisers, always travel light with only a car key and bank card, cash.

    Won't do etap or Di2 as I have Campagnolo tattooed on my 4rse.

    Tattooed or branded?

    Evening, nice day of "adventure biking" lots of singletrack and fire roads getting odd looks from the MTB lot who mainly seemed to be on Ebikes? Meh anyway home and nice fire while the temperature starts to plummet.

    Maybe they didn't need to tattoo one of the 'o's?

    In all the others I have done (one) the baggage handling would put some airports to shame.
    Unless I've got a bag btich I'll probably follow your plan in the future.

    Might try the big boy run and try a full marathon or possibly something more extreme for next year. Got few itches that need sorting before I'm to decrepit.
