    I tried connecting my 800 to my phone (android) last night using sportablet. I obviously did something wrong as it wiped all the activities on the garmin and reset my settings. It now won't let me set up my bike profiles again and won't find my cadence sensor. Is it worth master resetting the whole thing/are there any reasons why I shouldn't do this?

    Picked up the wrong keys this morning, only realised when I got to work and tried to lock my bike up. What a tit. My bike's now in a cupboard.

    Depends what it says in your tenancy. If your landlord hasn't carried out repair works then they're in breach of the tenancy but that doesn't necessarily mean that you can give notice (our landlord has been in breach of contract for six months, knows this, doesn't give a flying fuck).

    I've had a badly upset stomach after my last two runs (13km on Sunday; 8x800m intervals on Tuesday). I haven't experienced it before and I don't think I have changed anything in pre-run eating patterns. I may be eating too much bread. It's annoying.

    Welcome to my world. I'm yet to identify what food is disagreeing with me (other than really obvious things like 2 litres of fizzy water, yes I'm an idiot) - the only way I can reliably avoid an upset stomach is to run without eating anything at all before hand.

    Kind of this: ridewithgps.com/routes/5984934


    The route is entirely subject to change but I've booked places to stay along the way (except for the end, as I haven't got to that bit yet!) so those are for definite. I'll end up in the Hague and plan on spending a day there chilling out, and probably deciding that I want to live in the Netherlands (this happened last time I went there).
    I'd love to go to Bavaria - where did you go?

    Brilliant tips, thanks so much! I'm going to stuff my face :)

    Thanks so much @peter_v and @greeno! I'll definitely go to the Mauritshuis, I was a bit disappointed when I thought it was closed. I've just seen that it's 14euro entrance, eek - I forget how spoilt we are in the UK with free museums and galleries!

    I'll have cycled to the Hague from Berlin so I'm all up for a day of just wandering about - and I do love a chilly windswept beach (I'm not joking). Sounds like the Hague is going to be right up my street!

    Another question - any particular recommendations for a veggie (or veggie friendly) restaurant? Thanks! :)

    Thanks @fussballclub and @andy_k! Andy, any particular recommendations for veggie foods or should I just start eating on arrival and graze my way around the city?

    I've also just discovered that Berlin has quite a big swing dance scene so I'm going to check that out. Happy days!

    My mum was stalking me on facebook at the weekend and saw the photo - she sends the following comment:

    I think the photo shows:

    1. the station.
    2. bikes.
    3. lovely ladies having a good time.
      Winner all round I would say!

    She is also super jealous of our owl-touching escapades.
