    Liverpool St closed then reopened. They didn't blow up any cabs this time..

    I tried them at a MTB at Bottledog and then bought a few. You're right, very nice. They are doing a TT at Rake either tonight or tomorrow.

    Good. That was one of the bottles I bought in the Brewdog order last week. I managed to stagger into the office last Saturday and carry the remainder of the box home. Yay for drunken beer transport.

    Well, I have been training which is a start considering I hated bikes for a while there. I'm hitting my power targets for intervals and duration targets for long rides (though power is a bit down on those - might have something to do with spending all day Saturday on the piss the last one).

    It should be easier to ride the US course at steady state because it's flatter than both UK courses and there should be less wind. But it's going to be darker longer which might slow me down a bit and I'm looking for another light to take as a spare - I usually borrow Tom or James' but I want a smaller one and I'll give it to Mal for her commuter afterwards.

    I'll have a slightly faster bike setup than I did at Mersey last year but I'm not sure if I will be able to take my aero lid - might not fit in bike box and not sure what else I'll need to have in hand luggage.

    Bit worried about my bike along with all my potions and powders and US customs! Also about pissing off the bike in the US. They don't seem to mind killing each other but nudity seems to get their knickers in a twist and I don't want to be arrested in a skin suit because I had my cock out. :)

    Don't know what else might be different but I guess that makes it more interesting. Oh, it's a mass start, no 1min intervals so there could be carnage at the start with everyone being a bit too keen.

    I find 12s hurt too much to get bored of the laps you're doing. I'd almost prefer laps because I don't have to worry about getting lost taking wrong turns, etc.

    So many boredom. Such meh. But at least it's flat so it should be fast. Gonna try and PB it.

    Last night I felt like a snack. Mistake. Nuked two chocolate self-saucing puds, ate whole black forest cake (well, missus might've had a bit) and then did a block of Cadbury's.
    Suffice to say, the weight I lost earlier this year is back. I'm tired of using MFP and then just going over it and thinking 'fuck it'. Can't stand all the low calorie lunch options any more. Meh
