    Really great addition bro, can’t wait to see some of these IRL.

    @spudger loving that too, dressier watches are under represented on here!

    Like @hugo7 I’ve been gardening with child which takes double the time/stress/danger. 🐢

    Yeah this stuff is called Ground Guard by ACO. Dug the topsoil into some raised beds then double weed membrane, whackered 4” of type 1 aggregate, levelled 2” of sharp sand and then the grid which takes about 2” of pea shingle. Quite faffy compared to concrete tbh but I got given quite a pile and committed to it. I’ll be harvesting the rain so hopefully there won’t too much water run off to destabilise the edge.

    @hugo7 cheers bud.

    This seller on eBay has loads of NOS Tissot straps and bracelets, I’ve bought from them in the past, recommended.

    Cheers, like @hugo7 said there are pros and cons but I chose security above everything. Tbh my saddles have gone mouldy in the unheated/uninsulated workshop so I’m not losing much.

    @mashton Supermundane I think.

    I had a quick 8’x4’ base to knock up this week for my Asgard storage, I forgot what a chore it is the old school way.
    It’ll probably all get dug up again when we get the drive done but I’m sick of my workshop being a bike dump.

    Today I’m going to make a start reassembling the large Rhino greenhouse I bought on eBay six months ago, still can’t quite believe I got all that glass home unbroken. I did the base and then life scuppered it.

    Love your blue dial Zenith, nice twist on a classic dress watch.

    I like that Chronomaster Sport too, worth seeing it in the flesh for sure.

    Well done, that’s a great achievement.

    What isn’t sustainable about your approach? Is it just that you feel you’re depriving yourself of the fun stuff? My energy feels on a more even keel and by telling myself I can’t eat after 6pm I’ve found a surprising level of willpower in the face of my wife scoffing all the peanut M&Ms.

    Anyone still doing 16/8?

    My weight loss plateaud for a couple of weeks but in hindsight I was getting a little loose with the white bread and timings but now I’m back to a strict regime and my energy level is right back up. Started on the 16th Jan so coming up to six weeks and roughly 4.5kgs dropped (~84 Kg) which at least is back in the healthy zone for my height.
    Anecdotally my legs have felt pretty shite running, really heavy but I’ve been on a steady decline for the last 18 months due to a stubborn Achilles injury so maybe I just need to adjust my expectations. Times seem inline with BF % which was a take away from reading ‘Race Weight’ years ago so I’ll continue to track progress and as long as my HR vs Speed is dropping I’ll be pleased.
