That m60. Has been a bane of my life for the past 4. Years . I started a job in Trafford in late 2013 and was assured the roadworks would last till 2017. Now it's 2018.

Less than 12 miles from your house and by bike is mostly along NCN55. Brilliant low traffic route. Disused railway from New Bury to Monton, which has been. Bridgewater canal from Monton to the Trafford centre. Ride like that would cleanse the soul.

I got the varies so I could look at my running/ cycling gadgets whilst, well, running and cycling.

The sunglasses are pretty much essential for me too as I have terrible light sensitivity, to the point of blinding me in moderate sunshine. Looking cool is just a side effect of being able to see.

I am after all a man who thought "EXIT" meant something else.

I recall it was a bit more than that. 4 x "EXIT" signs in 12" lettering all pointing at the same 9 foot exit

It was just the fact that it was with sunglasses, that's what threw me. As a long time glasses wearer I would have to have prescription sunglasses which are an extra expense for something that I don't need, so I have never worn them, not ever if I recall correctly. If it is a truly bright day I see no harm in them but many wear them when overcast or even indoors, this always surprises me. Now it would seem anoraks do to.

Reactor lights are very popular and quite effective in bright lights. Could be that? Also, prescription sun gigs aren't necessarily expensive. I get two pairs for 80 which includes varifocals and suns. Mix and match. Stick with me here. The problem with cheaper glasses is that you have quite a few pairs, and I have found that having ample glasses around leads to a blase attitude to having the correct ones with you . I have two pairs of screen gigs, which stay at work and at home, a pair of varifocals with straight ear rests to slip on with a crash helmet (which stay in my biking jacket), sunglasses and standard varifocals. I can't do a lot of things with the wrong bins so can understand someone getting caught short. That said, I'm quite new to being a full on speccy 4 eyes and accept that it may not be the norm to have more sets of eyewear than Worzel Gummage had heads.

He not blending very well then is he? He stands out like a sore thumb. I don't need to avoid him, he doesn't know I exist, f**ker's wearing sunglasses, he hasn't seen me yet

It could be a double bluff. These Russian spies have to hide out somewhere you know, and don't be fooled by the gigs. As my old fella used to say "in the land of the two eyed man the four eyed man is king".

Does he wear this regalia everyday or was it a one off?

Did he suggest that the difference would be a positive one - that lifting would be beneficial to well-being? I am curious to know.

I'm not sure how many ortho surgeons Pete know's, but if it's the one I'm thinking of he definitely advocates lifting as a positive lifestyle activity James. He was also quite a bit more than 'just' an orthopedic surgeon and now well into his 70's still squats and pulls heavy on a regular basis. Whilst I don't bother much with gurning heavy lifting anymore when it comes to general benefits I'm with Pete on this one. It's just a pain to get the balance right.

He had other clothes, seemingly quite normal ones

Normal clothes, anorak, beard, sunglasses...

This is obviously someone outstanding trying casually to blend in. I think taking a different route to work is excessive, but this person is definitely someone to avoid. You just don't know with people.

Irlam station?

It was Glazebrook

Hmmm. Not really Glazebrook behaviour. Did he have other clothes on or just the anorak and sunglasses?

Irlam station?

I thought you had emigrated? Happy How's it going?

I still get asked about my Straight outta OSG T-Shirt. I tell folk if they don't know they'll never understand anyway. It seems to do the trick.

I think 3 pints downstairs trumps going backwards empty handed, especially if it was performed sans tray. Also it's less selfish as you get to give a pint to two mates and have one yourself, if you want to of course.

Were you a good roller skater Pete, and could you do any tricks like going backwards? I imagine that you would have had the appearance of an advert for Silvikrin in slow motion with your long hair at the time, whilst harbouring the menace of James Caan.

If you answer no to the first question we can pretty much forget the rest of it, but I hope you don't and my illusions are not shattered.

I've got into the habit of having a first meal of coconut milk (full fat), Whey, nuts and seeds. It looks like a meal out of the Matrix, but has a taste that grows on you. It's not a killer to strip carbs if you're willing to experiment and be creative. I reckon if you can get to a consistent sub 50g a day you've a good chance to turn this around. Good luck with it mate.

The best thing you can do is to go on an ultra low carb diet (under 30g of usable carbs a day).

I was going to suggest this, but knew that you'd be along to put it better Mac

Unfortunately, the NHS is still somewhat behind on this kind of thing, so if it's something you want to try, you need to do the research yourself.

Frustrating given the strain of poor dietary habits on the NHS
7 years on and she's still amazed and thinks that he must be some sort of genetic outlier to have recovered so much Eek

As my old fella used to say, there's none so blind as those who don't want to see
