If you enjoy my posts about #wrenching on my old truck engine rebuild project, please consider boosting this message. I'd love to find more people on the fediverse who are mechanically inclined and can share advice. Due to the decentralized nature, it's not as easy to find niche interests.

To anyone who doesn't know, I'm slowly rebuilding my 1965 GMC 1000 pickup. Right now I have the engine pulled. It's been machined, and I'm reassembling. I have a long road ahead.

Been mining the back catalogue of Soul Music on BBC iPlayer. Really powerful episode about God Only Knows by the Beach Boys, such an emotionally complex song and some sad tales.

Today has been mostly a bed day. Sadly this has involved disassembly and construction rather than lying in one. Two happy daughters though, so no complaints!

On-point advice from @selfcare just now; I went ahead with my 10 mile run this morning and finished in one piece. There was indeed some running full-tilt!

Have you been running full tilt today? Take a few moments to recharge.

I'm supposed to be doing a 10 mile race tomorrow, but I'm in two minds as to whether I should run or not. My training was thrown 2 weeks ago (hurting calf), and I'm wondering if it would be foolhardy running it now. Guess can always bale out half way...

I enjoy things like running, and recently signed up for a local 10 mile run at the end of December. This is much further than I've done before (I have a half marathon in mind for the future), but the training has been so much more fun than I expected! Late night runs in the cold are made so much better with a decent head torch and to keep me going... Any users out there fancy connecting?

This evening was my first orchestra rehearsal in ages. It is hard to fit in logistically with family etc, but I must make the effort as music is a part of me.

An answer to the question "are pop lyrics getting more repetitive?". I just love this kind of data visualisation! Fantastic work.


A friend round for dinner the other day was talking about a colleague in construction management. They'd transitioned from male to female, with good support from colleagues and company. Then pointed out she was probably now the best-paid woman in the company...

Been visiting family in Somerset, which gave us a spectacular run training route. Definitely longest and probably hilliest in quite a while.

I'm training for a 10 mile run in December. I've started with a Strava training plan, but it is a bit inflexible and vague. Does anyone have any suggestions as to better options for finding a plan to follow?

Ooh, just noticed today is my one-month fediversary! *dances a little jig*

Been to the cinema to see A Star Is Born, and feel duty-bound to point out that Lady Gaga is an extraordinarily talented woman. Wow.

Watching my 10yo daughter being coached by her older sister on giving a speech for the post of house rep. Really struck by quite how much they've both developed in the last few years
