    Sorry :( I don’t want to be a party pooper but it’s wise to know the symptoms of lactic acidosis, whilst rare it needs to be caught early if you do get it.

    5.9 at 0600hrs. Light overnight snowfall and I’m headed back under the duvet.

    Out of interest, do (m)any of you wear medical alert bracelets or similar?

    Wow @Goonergal that seems just randomly odd. My early start and 5.3 felt a bit like a dementor's kiss but it seem's reasonable compared to that.
