Let me guess: low carb and gluten free. Amiright?

No. High carb, also fatty. Hence the problem. I could resist low carb gluten free crap.

In other news you didn't care about, my email inbox is besieged with notices of sales at every single damn supplier of bicycle goods from whom I've ever bought. I'm suffering constant FOMO, especially after missing that $554/pair deal on the Favero Assioma Duo power pedals, which I didn't really need anyway.

If he figures it out maybe he can tell me how to be patient.

I counted the emails on Black Friday - 263 "deal" emails that I deleted.

On a wing and a prayer, right?

Power meters are nice and all, but I've managed without them so far, and although theoretically I could swap these onto all but one of my bikes*, I'm leery of constantly moving around anything that has to be threaded in (in opposite directions, no less) and then tightened down. So I'll use the PM in the Smart trainer for structured intervals and just do Modified Merckx Method on the road.

*Can't use 'em on the Circuit, because the pedal holes in the crank arms are blind and the Assiomas have no wrench flats.

Also, a couple days ago someone on the radio said this is the longest known palindrome sentence in English: "Sir, I demand, I am a maid named Iris."

Last year, with everyone W'ing FH most of the time, nobody brought Christmas treats. No will power required.

I like "Madam, I'm Adam", or "Mad, am I, Madam?",

Well, it was brought about by time on the trainer and that's the only bike of the two that's seen significant time on the trainer, IIRC; he's got several thousand trouble-free outdoor miles on that same bike. Trainers are a great litmus test for fit, and there's no guarantee that putting the Madone on the trainer would be happy good times, though that might be something worth trying after a bit of time off.

We all know palindromes are stupid. Or are they?

Funnily enough, my Dad's name was Bob.

This morning I put a new barrow and steel frame on the wheelbarrow we bought for the construction of the house 7 years ago. Half the cost of a new one. The barrow was so rotten it would collapse onto the wheel with any significant weight.
