    Well I didn't dwell in misery, I went to the track yesterday evening, had a good run! Beat my PB by around 2 minutes so was a good evening in the end!

    Swimming today after work! x

    The excitement planned for today is almost overwhelming.

    1) Clean the house thoroughly
    2) Tidy the garden
    3) Play taxi driver for the kids

    Time for a ride? No chance... :sad:

    It doesn't get dark till 8:30pm! Get all the jobs done quick and for a speedy sprint session, they are the best! If you have short time, you get better results! haha

  4. Trying to imagine what a "Quick sprint session" would look like on my Bakfiets.

    If I really push it I can occasionally achieve 18km/h.

    Downhill, obviously.

    Must confess, I don't know the meaning of 'sprint'.

    During my time in Edinburgh,i fell off the food wagon.Diabetes Prevention Prog i ate far too much.So much so at two a.m this morning i had a slight acid attack,not had one of those in years,boy did it burn.So today back on smaller portions,it was the dark chocolate,three massive ice creams,one sticky bun and finally the enormous Hard Rock Cafe baby back of ribs,not all in the same meal i might add.But i have over indulged,so today i will cut the lawn as a form of exercise.

    The wonderful travaling community have yet again destroyed all the bollards and moved onto the grounds next to the care home on mass..
    Another 10 days of chaos and excriment all over the paths and in the bushes.
    Marvelous...

  8. Sorry to hear about that, @meta lon . Is there nothing the authorities can do about that?

    Unfortunately, my taxiing duties don’t end until after 9PM.

    Yep they can but it generally takes 10 days to a fortnight to move them on.

    Funny thing is Travellers have often bought a parcel of land and set up roads and 'bays' to park their caravans in with water and sewerage laid on sometimes even electricity (whether legal or 'nicked') only for the 'camps' to be declared illegal and then smashed due to 'nimbys' taking court action.

    My question is where are they supposed to go, they're really a persecuted minority.

    The only running I did was between the chair and the porcelain throne. :cry: Good for sprint practice, I suppose... :whistle:

    Lovely sunny day here today. Feel a lot better, but still think I've been flattened by a bus.

    I do need to take a load of garden clippings to the recycling centre later though. An excuse to look at the bikes they have for sale, but according to their website, none of them are any great shakes.

    Oh dear, feel sorry for my colleague. He's splashed out £3,500 on a spangly new Canyon MTB. They supposedly had it in stock, but he's had the run around for two months, and it finally arrived yesterday. Unfortunately, some monkey had screwed in the top cap of the expensive Rock Shox Lyric forks and threaded' it (he found out when putting two 'tokens' in). He was going to over look the two scratches on the forks, but a threaded important part was too much. Poor lad has another long wait and is due to go on holiday with it in a week.

    Well, my wife has had a crappy day at work, so I think I'll make her ride to the pub 'off road' for a few drinkies later. It will be the first time the her new MTB has been 'off road'. What can go wrong, beer, and trails ?

    That's one way of looking at it.
    Equally, the camps could be declared illegal because they didn't have planning permission, as was the case with Dale Farm.
