    Morning folks,
    Another day and wfh for this one, at least it made for an easy commute. I went to Staines once, haven't felt the need to repeat the experience. Does TLW's back hurt because he's much older than he was a couple of days ago? Should probably go for a run at lunchtime, find it very difficult to get enthused about it beyond the fact that I should do some exercise. Do people really enjoy runnering? All the runnists I see look bloody miserable. We know TLW is mad as a hat full of frogs so his opinion doesn't count.

    Running's just a bit quicker and easier to fit in and does burn alcohol related calories quite well. Was/is also quite handy for lockdown as riding round in circles in the 'burbs isn't that exciting TBH. But best done in moderation.
    About covers it, bar the moderation - 1,335 miles this year

    I suppose you have to purge all that alcohol, but still.

    No wonder your back is fcuked.
    If I manage this weekend run, that’s me done for the year, bike stuff for the rest of it
  • Was a period in the 90s I was more runnist than cyclist, averaged almost 100km a week in ‘96 IIRC. Was *very* lean as a result, race weight about 71- 72 kg, and I’m 184cm.

    That year was one of the best Xmas Day’s I’ve had. Mate from work was another with no family in the same city, so we played a round of golf at sunrise, finished and I was home before 9am, had brekky and did the family catch-up on phone while the weather deteriorated to drizzly warm rain. Went running, did almost 35km just cruising along in the rain. Felt effortless somehow.

    Spent the evening at the traditional end of Christmas Day “bare foot BBQ” at friend’s place. Rules were turn up as informal as you wanted to sit on their terrace with a view of the city and Harbour Bridge, and clean up the leftovers from their lunch which was usually spectacularly good food (his wife is an awesome cook, best BBQ chilli prawns ever!), and raid his epic champagne stash.

    Sounds like my bike mileage. Or my running mileage if you add a decimal place.
