Training & Bike update

I have put an ebay bid on another bike (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=220872207869&category=33503&_trksid=p5197.c0.m619) but am thinking it wont be mine (oh no, it wont).  At this point it is probably still January before a bike will hove in to view.
Until then I am, as previously advised, concentrating on other parts of the essential training program.  Just now I appear to be bulking up on what I am assuming are essential winter fat stores (or I am 14 months pregnant and due to drop a baby elephant any time soon.)
I also recently re-read, well to be honest re-skimmed, Lance Armstrongs auto-B.  I thought I must have missed the chapter on his drug regime, but it turns out he is saving that for a future edition, so I was left with the bit about whether I like apples or not.  I thought hard about it, I went and ate an apple (apple crumble to be honest, with creamy custard) to confirm my thoughts and can confidently let you know that I DO LIKE APPLES.
With that bombshell, I shall away and watch the end of Scotland's interest in Euro 2012.


P.S. Tim,  have you been cycling to work?  We are interested in hearing what canines have chased you along the tow-path recently.

  1. Stuart, good to hear you're bulking up over the winter, I'm sure that will improve your chances of being able to cycle very long distances on a super light bike. (Bazzinga!)
    As I had the flu last week the cycling to work has taken a slight break. The dogs of Livingston must be wandering the street looking for someone to chase.
