50 minutes morning walk. Nothing noteworthy to report on this venture, since I went out at like 6:30 in the morning when most sensible folk are still in bed.

Hi Neil, training is going well at the moment! Progress is always motivational, and more motivation means more progress - however it's easier to progress when you are weak, than when you are strong and trying to get stronger, I have a long way to go. I used to think 200 was a good DL, now I'm close to 250 but all you guys on here are around the 300 level so 250 doesn't seem much!

Also I have The Small One hurling insults at me if I don't train hard enough.

solo training and progress is never easy so its good that you have someone shouting at your to get the bit more out of you.
the way your going 250DL is a very achievable weight.
but good luck on your strength quest

yeah, unfortunately I am many miles away and train at a gym which isn't as bad as most, but still isn't really for serious strength trainers - the people there are cool but it was night and day difference when Small came down and trained a couple of times with me, I envy you all being able to train with each other, the atmosphere alone must net you a few PRs!!

==========
squats
various warmups
120 x 2
130 x 2
140 x 2
150 x 2
160 x 5 - this is a PR by four reps but I'm still not happy

abs
6 x 10

sled drag
13 minutes on grass - conditioning has improved substantially

Nothing much to say about this workout, on paper it's a big PR but I wanted 6 at least. But if I can consider a 4-rep PR sub-par I must be doing something right, I suppose!

35 minutes walk this morning.

Thank you, razorbacked one - though truth be told, my squat is s**t. I should be repping 4 plates by now. Same goes for the bench!

Must make up for lost time not training hard*!

*That's training hard, not training 'properly' - at the core of it all, it's just hard work, WHATEVER training style you do. And I haven't worked hard enough!

Not as solid as I'd like it to be. You have set the bar high, Small One.
