This post is quite simply the most boring thing ever!

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!! Monday 6 October I decided to have a look […]

Stupid fucking hips!

I’ve had to take a deload this week because my hip flexors are quite unhappy with me. I don’t know if this is because of the volume of training Matt’s got me doing, the changes I’ve made to my squat position are taking a while to adjust to, or if my hip flexors are just […]

Competition 3 disappointment and other whining…

Week 3 and it’s all gone tits up :-(

This was not a good week at all. I’ve been a bit ill, I’m a little bit injured and I have been so tired I almost fell asleep at work! Really looking forward to Christmas so I can have a rest! Monday 16th: Pressing with Tara and Anna. Today was shit. I really wasn’t happy […]

I’m crap at this blogging malarkey…

The title says it all really: I’m crap at keeping up with this blogging malarkey! And it’s not because I don’t want to tell you all about my really exciting life etc. It’s just that you’d all die of jealousy (or boredom…most likely boredom…!) I haven’t really had anything to tell you about that might […]
