    Too much rain = saturdays long run may be a little bit harder than planned

    Forecast has changed from dry to wet again for most of the day.
    Back to sleep I reckon.

    Damp here aussi.
    Going through a spell of waking early when I don't need to get up.
    Beginning to piss me off.

    Morning. Steady day at home taking it easy. Loads of riding was planned but cba to swim with bike. Local roads are flooded in places and trails either washed out or deep mud. Oh and raining again.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Morning, soggy noisy start to the day, window fitters are at it again, external doors today.
    An yes it raining again here so perfect weather for it. An yet again I have had to drag the dog away from the fitters she was curled up in their van yesterday afternoon. Dozing away not a care in the world.

    Morning folks,
    Not raining here at the moment, but looks like it could do at any moment. Trying to work but can't connect, I guess it's the other end as I have plenty of connection here.
    Still no riding for me as wrist is still quite painful, tried it at the weekend and whilst I could rest it on the handlebars I couldn't change gears or brake hard, best not to ride for a bit. What's good for building strength in your right wrist?
    I suppose I could do some work that doesn't need the connection, cup of tea first.

    Had physio for carpel tunnel ages ago, squeezy ball squeezing works. wrist curls with a small dumb bell or if your feeling fancy one of those power ball things work
  • oxomanoxoman Posts: 7,572
    Squeezy ball and possibly small weight or bean bag and do rotations and curls with the wrist. Listen to your body though and take it steady. Some people use support bandages but personally I prefer not to.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    ...resists temptation on wrist action advice...

    Pain in butt rain here. After postponing planned work yesterday, got organised this morning, and as started the engine to head over so started the rain again. Heavy as. At least work is quite local so not a huge wasted journey. Might try this pm to at least get something done.

    Summertime and the living is easy. I blame Raab.

    Crudcatcher approach with lime and string?

    Just as well it's not raining here as I dropped juniors car off to get the air con re-gassed and walked home. While I was out emails went bonkers and I'm just catching up with it all. Luckily most of it is censored and/or can be delegated.

    Exercise and drinking later.

    Been a chilly week. Random shed jobs, some chainsaw stuff, a fair bit of walking/riding and even some faux-running for the first time in a decade or so.

    Much bike fettling, not all of which is going well. Trying to refit an old triple crank to OH's vintage MTB and the front mech won't play nice. Grr. Shifter #3 trial tomorrow, although I suspect the chainring wear is the main problem.

    New frameset arrived. Yay!

    Other new (used) frame due Monday.
