>Well, its the end of another week.
A week that has seen me do a 30 mile ride to work on Monday and 20 miles on the way home. My first 50 miles in a day since last summer. I’ve ridden in the driving snow home from work, cycled in bright sunshine…. Yes, the weather has been variable this week.
I managed 135 miles this week and have to say I enjoyed every minute of it. Its a long time since I rode that far in 5 days. In fact its at least October of last year, if not earlier.
Thursday brought me another physio session. Unfortunately, I’m not sure it has done me any good. The physio had me hoping on my bad leg and doing bunny hops in the gym. Sadly, I think the landing on my knee has done it no good. The knee is hurting me now more than it has for some considerable time. Walking up and down stairs today has been painful, and sods law- the lift wasn’t working properly at work and I had to keep moving between floors to speak to people today. Its done my knee no good. I’m sat here typing this after resting my leg since I got home 4 hours ago and my knee is still throbbing and feels swollen.
Thursday night brought a night off the bike and instead a train trip to Three Bridges. A journey I seem to be doing rather often these days. Who’d have thought I’d be happy to travel to the wrong side of the river! It also meant that I got a decent meal and hopefully the clothing I left behind may have been washed by the time I go back! Am I taking someone for granted?
On Thursday, I got my car back from the garage. It went in for repairs over 4 weeks ago! The repair bill is ridiculously high. I could have bought a nice carbon fibre bike for less. Having been without a car for the last 4weeks has made me realise how little I actually missed the car. I used the Aldi at the end of my street for shopping on my way home from work. I was able to use public transport to get everywhere else I needed to. I’ve travelled to Birmingham, Leicester, Swansea in the last 4 weeks. I’ve also been able to get around London without it affecting my social life. Those who complain re public transport in London are being unreasonable. I live 1/2 mile from a train station with trains to London every 10 minutes. I am ,1mile from a tube station and live 1/3 mile from a bus route. The buses run 24 hours a day! London does have some benefits!
Right, enough of this rambling. I have to be up early to get to the cycling club in the morning.
What was that you asked? You want to know what the title has to do with anything. Well tonight was the 25th anniversary of EastEnders and the revealed the answer to the whodunit – IE who killed Archie Mitchell. Well the Angelic Upstarts reveal in this song who killed Liddle Towers. Don’t worry though, it was not murder of manslaughter, it was Justifiable Homicide – possible the worst inquest outrage in history. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liddle_Towers
