    A) if it’s a ten minute ride yes, if it’s over on hour no.

    Desk diving. Don’t get to wear this one a lot, mostly it’s a G-Shock on my wrist that I don’t mind getting dirty. Love wearing it when I do though.

    Result: lost minimal floor space, minimal visual clutter, gained minimal work spot...

    So, I needed a place at home to sit behind a computer (iPad and keyboard) and pretend to do actual work. Problem is my apartment is 30m2 and I really didn’t want to put a desk in there. Lying on the couch and using the screen to type didn’t cut it either anymore. I do have a low bookcase on one wall, an IKEA Besta, 65cm high/ 40cm deep/ 240cm long. And I have acces to a shitload of scrapped oak beer benches that have been sitting in a field during the aftermath of our first lockdown. The oak tops are very weathered and the legs are rusted. So we’ve taken them apart and I (we) can use the boards as we like. Cue running nine of those boards through a sanding planer, squaring them off with a big big table saw, and glueing them together to form worktops that I cut to shape. I used lamellos/cookies to strengthen the bond between the boards and the gnarliest tears and knots got filled with clear epoxy. I sprayed on one coat of clear laquer before bringing them home to see how they fit before bringing them to work again to finish them with a few more coats of laquer. I’ll fit a simple plinth under the bookcases to raise them up to the required hight, 9cm should do it.

    Thanks to you lot of enablers I just ordered and received my first mechanical keyboard... Anne Pro2 with Geatron brown switches. Pic is of my nearly finished tiny work space, even smaller than a closet :D. And I’m trying to talk myself out of ordering some funky keycaps...

    Last “proper” workout of the year done. Time for some numbers...

    2020; 2*20, 3*20, 4*20, 5*20

    1. 2*20: on the last day of 2020 I turn 40
    2. 3*20: 60kg (5x3) benchpress & barbell row
    3. 4*20: 80kg (5x3) squat & bodyweight
    4. 5*20: 100kg (5x1) deadlift

    Started structured training again in Oktober after months of hardly training and dicking around. Started doing Starting Strength from November, easing myself into the big lifts and adding weight every workout. Only skipped working out during the hollidays, did get some bw training in though. Really happy with these numbers, good starting point for 2021.
    Goals for 2021: turning 41, benching 1*bw, squating 1.5*bw and deadlifting 2*bw

    Enjoy the last days of this year and have a good new years eve!

    Re-use as energy storage in buildings, ripped apart for recycling afterwards.
