Not a bad day in the office

It’s taken me ages to get round to writing this post and, to be honest, I wasn’t sure if I’d even bother. But actually, last Sunday’s competition was probably the most important competition I’ve ever done (and today is 12 months since I did my first Strongwoman competition: Britain’s Strongest Woman), so as I’ve bored […]

I may not be a champion, but I feel like a fucking winner!

There’s no point giving you a day-by-day run down of the pre-comp week because I was so exhausted, I was unable to actually do anything 😦 I went rock climbing for a friend’s birthday on Sunday which, despite being great fun (and I was actually quite good at it: I haven’t been rock climbing for […]

WOOHOO!! I qualified for the British Classic in September!

Yesterday, I competed in my first Powerlifting competition: the London Clubs comp at Bethnal Green. I needed a total of 225kg to qualify for the British Classic in September, which I got with 20kg to spare! A 85kg squat, 55kg bench press and 110kg deadlift gave me a total of 245kg. As always, the u63kg […]

Going head-to-head with my training buddy…

Recovery, gluttony and it all starts again…

Hello!! I decided not to bother you with ramblings about fuck all last week. I didn’t train at all so apart from the mountain of food I ate, there wasn’t much to tell.  Don’t worry though, I’ll give you a brief summary of that gluttony in this post!!  Last week… Last week, I mostly ate burgers […]

Competition 3 disappointment and other whining…

So here we are! Competition week, and as you can imagine, it’s been full of stress, worry and nervousness. Much of the stress I’ve felt has been about my weight. After last week’s success, my weight has really fluctuated, which has caused me to become even more irrational and obsessive! So, be prepared for me […]

Competition 2…

What a week to be ill! Competition number 2 is within sniffing distance (I’ve been doing a lot of sniffing this week) and my body’s decided it doesn’t want to play any more! There’s been very little training this week. I’ve just been desperately trying to get well enough so I can put in a […]
