I'll remember that.

Some time ago, September if I recall correctly, one of my regular girls declared that she was to return to University to garner another degree and so would greatly reduce the amount of "field work" she did. Basically it was all cancelled until the holidays.

It is now the holidays

She is back

And she is here tonight.

I am beside myself (which is where I like to be best)

This little lot took a surprising amount of time tonight, that is often the case when working free of deadlines, but when the good doctor pointed out that it had taken one hundred minutes I was very surprised.

There will be no training Wednesday as I will be filling myself with turkey at r kids and there will be no heroics Friday.

This year has not been great, I was slowly coming to the conclusion that I would never compete again but than something that DrRick said a couple of weeks back caused me to think again.

I will have to do some research first, but I have some decisions to make, since Dave C left is in September there have been no powerlifters of note at the club, I don't class myself as one of those. I didn't even class myself as one when I was any good so I sure as hell don't now I have turned to s**t.

That I will continue to train is a knocking bet, an end to training would be unthinkable, but whether it is a way of passing time or as a means to an end remains to be seen. It will probably rest on just how s**t I actually am and what, if anything can be done about it.

Your class was won last year with 240/102.5/220. Just as a reference point.

It will be four years in March since I last set set a British record. Interestingly one of which was the total = 600 which is almost 40 kilos more than the above,, it is all in the squat it would seem.

Hmmmmm !

Excellent Happy . One of my favourite bands (Soundgarden) released an EP or somesuch many years ago titled "Satan oscillate my metallic sonatas". I believe this is one of the longest palindromes in existence.

I have since remembered that my last competition, which is quite a bit more recent totalled 520 which is about 40 kilos below the above.

Hmmmm indeed.

An unusual Christmas yesterday as there was only the three of us for dinner but seven of us for tea, which rather threw the usual timings out.

For some reason I cannot fathom my sister-in-law decided to add cauliflower cheese into the mix for Christmas dinner. Regular gentle readers will probably recall that I regard cheese as rancid filth.

I also maintain a policy whereby if someone is kind enough to cook for me I will eat it all. So the first four mouthfuls were vile and the next half dozen or so tainted, but after that all was delicious.

I also maintained my now, usual Christmas tradition of driving the whole way around the M60 on Christmas morning, this was my first in a petrol car, which was fun, but I do prefer diesel.

A day on the couch today and back to training tomorrow, I suspect I will squat

The 170 was good depth but very laboured on the way up and it would have been foolish to attempt more. The 140 were easy but the back ached on the put down, the first one quite a lot and the second two rather less but that is never a good sign. The triples at 100 were all paused, the last three sets quite excessively paused. The achey hips ceased aching as soon as I sat in at the bottom but started again once up. Not the best day I have ever had.

I blame the cheese on Christmas day

I was alone for the first forty five minutes of this but just before four the place suddenly and quickly filled up with weightlifters, some actual and some wannabes but I was very glad to see them and things were slightly easier for their presence.
