Week 4 of my off-season mesocycle, and I’m definitely looking forward to deload (week 6). You never know, I might have the energy to tidy up my flat! My diet has totally gone off the rails and I’ve gained 5kg in 5 weeks! As Matt would say, “Gainz”. Luckily, I still just about fit in […]


I promised a more exciting post this week, but guess what, I think I’m gong to fail!! I should just accept it, I’m not very interesting… Ah well. Here’s my usual mix of training rundown and food pics, with added knitwear. Monday 13 October Well, the week started off positively! I felt rested and was […]


I’ll apologise now: I really don’t have the energy to write anything this week. I know this blog isn’t exactly a thrill-a-minute, or even particularly well written, but this week I seem to be struggling to string a coherent sentence together. So I’ll keep it brief!!

Getting out of bed on Sunday (and Monday…and Tuesday for that matter!) was uncomfortable and depressing. Ridiculous considering there were only really nine […]

I absolutely cannot wait for this competition to be over. I have pushed myself so much since the last comp – it’s paying off, mostly! – and I am fucking exhausted.
