Quite a pleasant change this little lot, the hip and back have ached most of the day but a bit of moving around has worked wonders and it has eased considerably. A quiet weekend is planned as a new storm is predicted, I have no worries on that score as these things are never as bad as forecast and this isn't forecast to be too bad, so I am a trifle baffled as to why they have even bothered.

The name of this storm, I would pronounce "George" as it is spelt "Jorge". The Spanish have named it so the BBC have decided to pronounce it "Ho-Hay" This saddens me. An Englishman pronouncing "Jorge" as "George" seems perfectly reasonable to me, "Ho-Hay" does not.

It would never have occurred to me not to pronounce it "Hor-hey". But then it would never have occurred to me to pronounce Brooke the way you do Happy.

No doubt the benefits of educating a child rather than punching him in the face.

But how did you even know ? You could have given me a hundred attempts attempts at pronouncing "Jorge" and I would have NEVER have even thought of "Ho-hay" (the newsreader didn't have an "r" in it)
"
Then again, the catholic schools I attended told me "Jesus" was "Gee-zus" whereas the Brazilian chap who plays for Manchester City of the same spelling is "Hay-zoose" I do not doubt that, after all it is his name, but how was I supposed to know ? And my education tells me that if you call the born-in-a-manger bloke "Hay-zoose", you'll burn baby, oh how you will burn, and for an eternity too.

'Horhey' is an acceptable pronunciation if your can't make the Spanish sound which is a soft version of the sound in 'loch'. The proper Spanish pronunciation is XOR:xeh, but HOR:hey is adequate.

I suspect I know because I remember Jorge Posada, the baseball catcher, from when I followed the sport.

Well whatever his name is, he never showed up, no wind or rain last night, nor this morning, in fact walking home after breakfast earlier, it was very pleasant sunshine

I never heard of the man but that is a very reasonable explanation of how you know.

Monday, 2nd March, start 16:00

Before I started today I did a bit of foam rolling for the hip, it was deeply unpleasant but nothing I did not expect.

Bench, very raw
20 x 15
20 x 15
20 x 15
20 x 15
50 x 5
60 x 3
70 x 2
80 x 1
90 x 1
100 x 1
110 x 1
120 x 1
115 x 2
110 x 3
105 x 4
All the singles were paused and then the sets were touch and go. The 120 single was fine, hard but fine. The 115 double was ok but I experienced some discomfort in the left elbow at lockout, the 110 triple was the same but the discomfort was greater and the 105 for four was the same but downright painful. No point being silly about this so end it right here right now. As I finished earlier then expected I tried some bonus foam rollering, still deeply unpleasant but this time as I struggled to move my bulk about the elbow was screaming. It would appear to be well and truly f**ked and most annoyingly of all - no real idea what has caused it.

Wednesday, 4th March, start 16:00

Arrived to find Mack training without lights which is excellent news, so to celebrate I had a session with the foam roller before starting which was as unpleasant as ever but whereas the elbow was screaming on Monday today it merely complained quietly which is surely something gained.

Hack squat
40 x 5
50 x 5
60 x 5
70 x 5
80 x 5
90 x 5
100 x 5
110 x 5
120 x 5
130 x 5
140 x 5
150 x 5
160 x 5
170 x 5
180 x 5

These were much better than last time, the only problem with the hips and back was believe it or believe it not immediately after getting changed, on the initial standing up. I am not sure, but I suspect it may be a good thing

Started with some foam rollering which was awful as always

Tricep pushdown
30 x 10
35 x 10
40 x 10
45 x 10
50 x 10
The elbow didn't like the first set, working on the principle that it may ease up if I did more, I did just enough to prove that theory wrong tonight.

End.

bas***d !

Hung around to watch some lifting by folk who are not cripples and had an interesting chat with the good doctor about the AGM of last weekend

The elbow is much better than last week but nowhere right, so we must experiment

Bench, very raw

20 x 15
20 x 15
20 x 15
50 x 5
60 x 5
70 x 5
80 x 5
90 x 5
90 x 5
90 x 5
Not that bad really, the hardest part is re-racking the bar believe it or not. I had no wish to higher than ninety tonight though nor to do any more than three sets. Not very painful, but it does feel weak and awkward

Left home this morning in semi daylight and arrived at work in more or less daylight.

It does make a difference.

I believe that next year in March the EU will put their clocks forward one hour and those countries that want to will never touch theirs again.

In October the countries that want to will put theirs back one hour and then never touch theirs again.

How that affects us non-Eu countries remains unclear, we'll probably go forward half an hour and stay there as we are the masters of compromise and getting things wrong.Unhappy Unhappy Unhappy
