    Legs were fine in the end thankfully, cheers. I was a bit tired during the day, that's par for the course when I'm looking after either of the kids anyway, but nothing I couldn't handle. Did another 10km last night around the Rotherhithe spur, I think it's my new baseline. I'm pretty happy with my progress, considering I only started recently and could only manage 3km or so in twenty minutes when I began.

    The main reason I've taken it up is because I don't really have the time to do polo any more. I'm only free in the evenings after 9 pm when both kids are gone down.

    You could just join the 100 a couple of miles down the road from Stratford. Nobody will care of your rider number is slightly different.

    You wouldn't get an official time; does that matter to you?

    I did my first ever 10+ km this evening, ended up doing 12 because I just wanted to run home out of the rain. Finished stretching now, let's see how I feel tomorrow...

    I also recommend King Of Hearts in New Cross. I've found it difficult to get a slot there in recent times, so book ahead.

    Edit: I don't have any problem with his representing Ireland by the way.

    Certainly doesn't seem like that.

    What do you think of Froome as a GB rider?

    It's just by any real world, non-sport definition someone who was born in Britain and grew up here is British (albeit influenced by the culture and country of their parents, of course).

    Not everyone.

    So, fruitarianism. Does anyone here adhere to it? Does anyone in the UK? What's the reasoning for it? Does anyone have a good resource or book to recommend as a starting point?

    I think I understand the logic of it, but I'd like to read more.

    Do fruitarianism adherents tend to be religious?

    Anyway, does anyone have any good vegan cookbook recommendations?

    Veganomicon seems to get a lot of use by my partner.
