Where I break my promise…and remain boring as hell!

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 […]

Post-comp laziness and epic (?!) new goals

I came down from my comp high pretty quickly as all the junk food I stuffed in my face took its toll and I seized up like I was a 92-year-old woman! Getting out of bed on Sunday (and Monday…and Tuesday for that matter!) was uncomfortable and depressing. Ridiculous considering there were only really nine […]

Where I travel to Brum for some deadlifts and a 1000kcal flapjack!

This week, the peak cycle starts! This means lots of heavy sets and probably some tears! I’ve got quite lofty ambitions for the British Classic on 20 September – which may not be entirely realistic – but I’m going to work my arse off to get as close as I can! I seem to be […]

Going head-to-head with my training buddy…

PBs, van pulls, Oreos and holy fuck! 1 week until the comp!

Time is flying by. How the hell is it June already? I can’t believe that instead of putting the finishing touches to my blog this time next week I’ll be pulling vans, deadlifting cars, tossing kegs and all kinds of other stupid stuff. Despite doing this comp for fun and the photo opportunities, I’m still […]

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 […]
