Sorry mate. Keep that fire burning and lift some heavy ass weights. Keep your friends close by. It helps a lot.

More than ever before, that 140kg squat needs to be tamed.

Beaten. Smashed.

Don't make me repost the skinny jeans picture.

Thank you everyone for the support. Was a rough week, eating has been bad and did not do any training at all. Spent the weekend with my sister and kind of got me head together. Plan for the week is to get my shit back together.

Back to the gym, was good to see the boys again and they all gave me their wisdom. Strength has been sapped though and winter has struck, suddenly its -1 degrees again and ice on the ground. My poor chi has no chance.

Squats: 10xbar, 5x60kg, 3x80kg, 3x90kg, 3x100kg 3x105kg (nearly pinned), 2x5 90kg // got my rage on but it was not helping. Might also be cos its first session with flat shoes, or that I have not eaten much the last week or cos Im just WEAK!!!
Strict Press: 8xbar, 8x30kg, 8x40kg, 8x50kg
DB press
Side & Front lifts
DB rows.
Walk home in the frost.

Was going to hit the gym again last night. Then a storm erupted over Cork City, got soaked waiting for the bus home and the rain did not stop so could not walk to the gym. I lost the car in the mini divorce, probably need to get another one if it starts interfering with training.

Did a couple of minutes foam roller stuff for the DOMS in my quads. Such light squats and I get DOMS, sucks.

Thanks JP, staying strong. Started looking for a housemate, maybe start a Irish Cult. First reply was from a nice Finnish lady, that might be nice.

Trying to keep myself into routine, went back to Aikido tonight. Gym tomorrow, pub Friday.

Aikido
====
Normal instructor back, only three of us on the mate. I got called up as Uke the whole class so was drilled, every pressure point in my arm is awake and alive.
One of the ex's best friends was also training, with only three of us on the mat we worked together the whole class. So was a good exercise in mediation, training with someone who is pissed off with you, was good.

Have lost 4 kg in the last 2 weeks, cunt. Down to 95kg again :cry: and the really sad thing is I look the same size. Its not like my abs have suddenly popped out (even more) or the peaks of my ceps are even more distinct, just look the same.

Oh noes, not 95kg! You are wasting away! :wink:

Are you still planning on doing that half-mara? If so it could be a blessing in disguise.

Good squatting, but I did 122.5 and didn't need ibuprofen. Hang in there grandpa. :lol:
