CF is nasty. CF nano-tubes are even worse!
I cycled 62 miles today, in order to have this for dinner...
Nice! I cycled 69 miles Saturday. I did not cycle Sunday - too worn out! Time Trial Tuesday, Recovery ride Wednesday and 50 mile race next Sunday.

Nice!
Did 30 on Friday, 31 Saturday. I think that I could have done 80 today.
Oh well, other things needed attention this afternoon.

How about in moderation, one a month or two months. That`s pretty much what I am trying to do.

Without a doubt. I know up front that total commitment will be difficult, if not impossible. So allowing for a periodic indiscretion should make it easier to do.

One of the first things I did was went over various made at home things I can do that are healthy too. You know, things that we like a lot but never give a glance at what they are made of, but then find out they are actually healthy too?

Like that peanut flavored salad dressing they serve in the nicer Japanese restaurants? Low calorie, zero trans and unsaturated fats, low sodium, and packed with flavor.

It even makes a great marinade.

I made a quart of it the other day.

And hummus.

Make my own.

Maybe I'll have a bacon cheeseburger for Halloween.

Just one.

And it will have lettuce and tomato on it because they are healthy.

Some home made fries, baked, not fried. Healthy again.

And a beer.

I'll be due by then.

I ran up the Law (extinct volcano in the city centre of Dundee) with that camera that shall not be named tonight because their had been reports of aurora all over Scotland - that felt like proper cardio for me Came too late though, solar activity had already returned to normal and I didn't see anything. I was, however, surprised to see several police cars parked up there and officers walking around with big torches - it's usually a pretty quiet area, surrounded by little woods, and with no lighting at night. An officer approached me and asked whether I had seen a man dressed in jeans and a black t-shirt anywhere. I hadn't. So on my way back down the hill through the dark forest I clutched my tripod in my hand like a club while scanning the surrounding groves with my headlight Back down I encountered another police car and an officer patrolling with his dog. I stopped and attached the tripod back to my backpack lest the guy thinks I am the suspect, walking around, clubbing people with a carbon fibre tripod

Grilled chicken, on top of a salad, with some dressing, has worked for me. Have not had a soda pop for 2 years. NOT giving up beer... therefore the insane amount of miles cycling

Talking about asbestos, there is a small handbag woven out of asbestos fibre in the Natural History museum in London. It is in the very well sealed containers inside the well-sealed display case of asbestos among all the rocks and stones. A whole floor of them.

When I was about 22, I toured an Asbestos roofing / cladding factory. We had masks. Strange stuff, Asbestos.

80! That's a big ride. I'm training for a 100 mile ride. Lake Taupo Cycle Tour, November. I'm nowhere near ready!

Introducing a friend to cycling, we did 45 miles into and out of Geelong along the roads the original Mad Max was filmed on. We didn't see any black Ford coupes on the day, so in a couple of weeks time we're doing the 60 mile event of Ride Around The [Port Phillip] Bay.

Guess that explains the morning sickness, and bacon cravings.

What really sucks about my recent health issues is no more Tillamook cheddar.


Say it ain't so!
