I decided to step away from bikes for the day, do something totally removed and play golf with my mates. I cricked my neck within the hour and had a miserable time. It occurs to me that I have been sawing, filing, welding and sanding with my shoulders up around my ears, tried to swing a club in the same way and the inevitable happened. I need to find some relaxation in my work, I’m too tense.
Pleased with the speed with which the muscles relaxed though. I say relaxed, I probably mean locked into a knot of self-preservation and began to hurt less. Either way, I’m back on the steel and building the supports for the easel and umbrella. I’m nearly at the end of adding metal and am pleased that the frame doesn’t seem to weigh like a heavy old pig.
