Well 5 day 2(repeat)

19,19,22,22,18,18,22 and 92

I am going for an exhaustion test tomorrow. I doubt I will do 100, but it is my last chance to beat you to it.

Looking at the numbers I should do it on my exhaustion test at the end of these sets but I’m not convinced I’ll get there. Then week six is so tiring I definitely won’t do it before the exhaustion test that week. So you might get two chances.

Decided to redo week 4.  I'm just free styling now!

18, 22, 16, 16, 34

8 more for the last set than 2 weeks ago.  


With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

Another huge leap.

Are you able to do any core stuff?

Holy ###### I'm going backwards.  65 on the exhaustion test at the weekend, so went back again to week 5.  Day 1  36, 40, 30, 24, 40+ (41).

That was keeping the interval time down though, so there is that.  Keeping on keeping on.

It is never steady and you cannot control that. What you can control is doing it.

So, congratulations!

Thanks mate, really appreciate the back up, thank you! 

This is definitely keeping my mind off other things at the moment so in a way I'm sort of glad I'm not hitting the goal quickly.  Keeps the focus going.  Silver linings and all that.  Lower half got pretty badly hurt in a fall about 5 weeks ago too so I've been doing just upper body work while carefully keeping the lower bits moving with yoga.  Got out at the weekend for a decent walk for the first time since getting hurt and did 3.75 km in 33 minutes, fingers crossed I can start rebuilding there too and back to light jogging in a week or two.

Ordering a set of scales on Friday - decided I may as well use this time to get leaner given I'm in the house and have complete control of my food. Weirdly I haven't touched a weight in over 2 months now, and yet I seem to have gained some muscle. It's encouraging that my own programming is going so well, I'm just quite surprised!

One thing I've learned over the years, and one that I wished I'd have know 20 odd years ago, is that weights aren't the be all and end all. Some of the strongest people I have ever come across, as in functionally strong, have never lifted a weight.
