So, on Sunday I was supposed to be competing in my second ever strongwoman competition. I was prepared, I had worked hard to master the dreaded axle presses that had been plaguing me and I was undoubtedly better prepared than before my last one. What is more I had more or less banished the obligatory… Read More The best laid plans of mice and men..
I started this project with the intention of getting fitter and stronger and feeling ready to compete again. I have been making progress and all that, but the general goal had no end date. Until now that is… Well, maybe not an end date as such but certainly a significant interim milestone… OK, what I… Read More Project competition ready just got more important…
Yesterday was Wednesday, and following in the grand tradition of Wednesdays that may have only existed in my head, I declared it cardio Wednesday. Ok cardio plus some yoga Wednesday.

I think I thought I’d lose the impetus at some point, but here I am still going, albeit not quite as regularly as I did… Read More Happy New (blogging) Year!
Not the metaphorical wall that athletes hit, but a real wall, made of bricks. Yes it is relevant, a wall is the only thing I took a picture of while I was walking around during my lunch break today! Look here it is! I tried to make it look more interesting… I also did my… Read More Janathon 2021 day 6: a wall!
Having made a huge sweeping statement about completing squatober this year, I have swiftly reconsidered! I already have a fairly heavy 5 days a week lifting programme which is designed for me to get me ready for my competitions. When I considered the reality of doing another 5 days (at least) a week heavy lifting… Read More Slight change of plans…
So, I have just discovered that Squatober is a thing. It is as simple as it sounds, it is squatting, every day in October…or possibly every day in October apart from the Sundays. Whichever it is it is a lot of squats on nearly every day in October. It is a properly programmed thing, with… Read More Squatober…
Project 44 shed gym edition day 2… involved a kettlebell workout!
