    Not walking hounds, running or visiting beach or pubs.

    Yep bored and feeling sorry for myself 😂

    Morning. Need to do something active today. Figured out that a day of sitting doing nothing makes my back ache a lot.

    I started a “poor delivery“ thread. Think there’s been a nibble.

    Do you need to borrow a turbo?

    For a normal person, who wasn’t on holiday, this might not be too arduous. TLW1 on holiday, confined to barracks? The Sh!t is going to hit the fan sooner or later.

    "Only" averaged 18.6mph on the way in this morning and Strava has told me I was taking it easy.

    Surely you’re too young (forum wise) to remember the notorious’I blame wiggle’ thread?

    Ya think?

    It will be one of the most epic threads ever.

    Lovely morning. Only got on the laptop to book a slot at the local waste place.

    Spent a load servicing my bike in the spring, bought a new bike stand in preparation for the fettling needed after the thousands of miles I would ride….. managed significantly less than thousands. Significantly less dived by 100 might be more accurate 😕

    When your still sleepy in the morning, it’s far more appealing to stumble into a comfy bed of a car seat than perch your bum on a razor blade on two wheels.

    That’s really nice of you, but I should really use my spin bike……. But currently out of breath walking around the house 😢

    Any possibility to go running where there's nobody else around ?

    Taken a half day today so doing a bit of online house hunting and a spot more sticking stuff on Freecycle/Fleabay. Then a couple of work calls this afternoon.

    Not currently flavour of the month in Sainsbury’s, particularly with a portly checkout girl named Stella this morning.
    “Stella!” Shouts I. “You must get that a lot?”

    Apparently not 😕

    Walked dog. Headed into town to discuss motorbike repairs, then lunch and some mindless retail stuff with Mum. Shipped out some more odds and ends from the spare parts drawers, just one frame to sell and that'll do for the moment.

    Must get back to some riding again, been slack the last couple weeks.

    Got a bit carried away on the ride home from work. Strava said I was putting in some effort this time.
    Just what I needed before 30 mins of squats, lunges and crunches at the gym.
