I've not dared examine the mirror too closely.

Welcome to my world, Geoff.

How did you manage to bust your collarbone, Geoff?  It was quite a common postal injury amongst ones who fell from their bikes.

He probably fell off a bike too. Isn't he also a fancier of those little triangular seats that would need to be sold in an adult shop if it rode any further up your private parts?

He is a long distance biker which is not a motorcycle thing, but a pedal your ass kind of thing.

The prices we pay to stay healthy.

That is the type of bike to which I was referring.

Ridiculously I took a corner too fast only two miles away from our new house. There's a short cut in the rough between paved roads. Not used to it, weaved between bollards and front wheel decided to stay put in a rut. Bit embarrassing, but luckily no one saw my indignity. I cycled home then wife took me to Wythenshawe hospital for X-ray. My bicycle survived without fracture thank goodness.

I barely can ride my bike without a broken arm. Glad you got home safely and glad the bike survived the ordeal, as well.

I was watching a video about military tactics that shouldn't have worked, but did.

When Hannibal was approached by a navy that seriously outnumbers his forces, he had his men capture poisonous snakes in clay pots and then launched them at the ships. As the posts landed and broke, the furious snakes emerged, biting anyone they could get their fangs on. Many of the sailors jumped overboard and drowned and many more were bitten by poisonous snakes and died.

The "slithering death tubes" worked. That phrase has just tickled me since I heard it.

Why am I not surprised!

I like history too, real and fictional. Most of the real is fiction anyway.
Hah, Gaynor couldn't resist opening a box of Thornton's chocolates on this eve of her birthday. She wanted me to have some so that she wouldn't eat the lot (not that she really would), but on examining the ingredients I said they all contained some milk so sorry, you'll have to eat the lot! I'm glad cos trying to lose some of the fat I've put on this last 6 months or so of relative inactivity. Tough, she said, and produced a vegan bar of chocolate she'd bought in the Asda delivery! Damn!!

Once my son started writing up my workouts, Dick has been going out to the garage with me on the days he doesn't golf. He didn't golf today.

Here, it is Memorial Day, a day in which we honor those who died in the service of their country. Lt. Mike Murphy was one of those unfortunate souls. The CrossFit community honors our fallen brothers and sisters on this day by doing Murph, Lt. Murphy's favorite workout.

I am not a 20 something male and have never been able to do the thing as actually written.
1 mile run
100 pull ups
200 push ups
300 air squats
1 mile run
all while wearing a weighted vest

I do a scaled version, usually half, and since I can't do a pull up, I have to do some version of that as well.

Dick was out there in the garage with me today. It was his first Hero WOD and he managed to survive it. It was the eighth time I have done this and each time my scaling options are a bit different so it is difficult to compare times. But I did the things that Craig wrote out for me and hope to all that is holy that I can still walk tomorrow. And move my arms.

I used to do 50 push ups every day until our first born.
I can hardly do 5 push ups now.
Ride a bike - yes, and all day as long as you don't want me to sprint for more than 100 yards.

I can still walk and move my arms. We both even survived our workout this morning. Now I have a couple days of no gym. Not sure if my legs are good enough to ride a bike, but maybe by tomorrow. Surely by Thursday.
