I have signed up for the FOD mini enduro as my first ever enduro. Is anyone else going? Any words of wisdom.
I thought I would have trained or at least made my wheels tubeless but time has flown so im completely unprepared as usual.

This is markoulinis wife. This sounds similar to our situation (although perhaps not to the same degree). In my case feelings of frustration towards my OH usually are just projections of feelings of frustration about myself. I am feeling frustrated, angry with myself and my situation and this comes out badly to the ones closest to me. Offers of ‘quick fixes/solutions’ to my problem, like find a new hobby, also infuriate me because they usually mean ‘your attitude causes ME a problem. You need to get a grip asap because I am affected by this negativity and I don’t like it’. In other words, it’s as if you’re saying ‘it’s all about ME!’
Instead of offering ‘solutions’, which she is already aware of herself, my advice would be to preoccupy yourself with understanding why she feels angry/frustrated/ worried. Have many discussions and really listen to her. But not just that, because don’t expect that you will ask once and she will just be happy and willing to spill her most inner and scary thoughts. Really<span style=”font-size: 0.8rem;”> try to understand what’s troubling her. Sometimes even vocalising your worries can be a scary thought because you are also trying to hide them from your own self. So talking about them to someone else is difficult. If and when she will talk to you, just listen and try to empathise and understand. Don’t jump into trying to solve her problems! (See previous point). </span>

Just back from the cinema and disappointed. Too obvious about K’s identify and the whole one eyed lady wasn’t needed. The soundtrack was !!!! in comparison. The use of snow as opposed to rain in the original was a poor attempt to grab something I can’t quite verbalise at 1am.Posted 2 years ago | Go to post
Reply to: Panic attacks and dealing with them
I suffered from panic attacks (>50) over the past 15 years.
Learning to recognize the signs (irrational thoughts, etc) really helps you prepare rather than panic.
When your breathing is going crazy you need to belly breathe and walk around do not bend over!
I never went to a Doctor as i’m stupid but I did eventually learn to deal with my social anxiety by understanding how the thoughts I have about myself are not reflected by others around me and hence I have nothing to worry about.

If you want a 700c tandem frame I have a bargain one (its big suits two people both about 5’11 upwards) for £50 collected in Bath.Posted 4 years ago | Go to post

Grapes of Wrath, filled my tiny mind with sadness and made me doubt the future in our wealth drive world. Exactly what any 18 yr old should read.

Reply to: Darkside!!! Planet X wheels
i have had nothing but **** from my planet x hub, light it might be but torsion rigidity or build quality (joytech!) it lacked! probably the Alu axle. A waste of money, it is now a pepper pot and so much more a joy to use!
