Undergoing a 24-hour blood pressure control. The damned thing is trying to squeeze my left arm off. I have to stop typing when it does its thing, and discovered it's probably not the best idea to be driving, either.

This "growing old" stuff is fun -- not!

Both my parents ended up using one of those, so it is a possibility. Plus I now know how to use one to smack someone, so be careful!

Went on what was a - quote: "Pretty good training ride, don't you think?" with the GF yesterday.

We covered just under 37km in 1hour 45 with a tailwind for a significant part...

Now I'm in the dog house for accidently letting slip that I had 3 hours of base allocated, not a recovery ride

Surely you knew that your GF was going to react in that way?

It was an accident! She heard me on the phone talking to a teammate organising to rearrange my rides over the next few days
